WHAT INGREDIENTS ARE NEEDED TO MAKE CARAMEL APPLE COOKIES?

  • ½ cup butter, softened to room temperature
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup chopped green apple
  • 12 soft caramels, unwrapped

HOW DO YOU MAKE THESE DELICIOUS COOKIES?

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Prepare a baking sheet with grease or parchment paper.
  3. Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg until combined.
  4. In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, salt, and baking soda until well combined.
  5. Add dry flour mixture to sugar mixture, and mix until combined.
  6. Gently fold in apple pieces.
  7. Scoop rounded tablespoons onto a prepared baking sheet.
  8. Place caramel in the middle of each cookie, and gently push down.
  9. Bake for about 10-11 minutes or until just beginning to brown.
  10. Move to a wire rack to cool.

WHAT KIND OF APPLES ARE BEST TO USE?

I highly recommend the Honeycrisp variety. These apples are very crunchy and they hold up well during the baking process. Fuji apples also work really well.  Just don’t use a soft apple (like Red Delicious) because softer apples tend to get mushier when baked.
