Caramel Apple Cider Cookies

Kara made these Caramel Apple Cider Cookies a couple weeks ago. She brought one over for me to try and suggested I put it in the microwave for 10 seconds before taking a bite. Oh Em Gee!! It was delicious!

Here in Chicago it got cold fast. Only a few weeks ago it was warm and sunny, now it is really windy, cold, wet and gloomy. It’s the kind of weather that warrants a piping hot apple cider. But wait a minute! This is even better. It tastes just like hot apple cider but instead it’s a soft, caramel-y cookie.

This is one of the best cookies I’ve ever eaten (and I’ve eaten A LOT), and the most perfect fall cookie recipe. The cinnamon, the caramel, the apple cider…it all screams FALL! Bring these to work and impress your coworkers or bring them to your Thanksgiving gathering and impress all the guests. Or even better make them for nobody but you and impress yourself.

Here's what you'll need

In a small bowl whisk flour, cinnamon, baking powder and baking soda

In the bowl of a stand mixer cream butter, sugar, salt and cider mix

Add eggs, one at a time

Mix in the vanilla too

Gradually add the dry ingredients

Flatten the dough in the palm of your hand and add a caramel in the center

Make sure the caramel is covered and roll the dough back into a ball

Bake until just light brown around the edges. Maybe space them more than we did too

If you like apple cider then I promise you'll love these!
