Next time I'll try fresh apples - what the heck! Maybe I'll try an apple extract with the dried apples to boost the apple flavor.
If you have any tips - let me know!

Prep:

Method:

Bake

Ingredients

3 small
apples-dehydrated
1/2 bag(s)
carmel bits
2-1/4 c
flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
salt
1 c
butter
3/4 c
sugar
3/4 c
brown sugar
1 tsp
vanilla extract
2 large
eggs

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Cream butter.
2
Add sugars and blend.
3
Add vanilla. Blend.
4
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
5
Gradually beat in dry ingredients.
6
Chop apples (or crumble them!) and stir into mix.
7
Add carmel bits. Mix to distribute.
8
Place mixture into a bowl. Chill for 2 hours (or overnight).
9
Preheat oven to 375F.
10
Line cookie sheets with parchment paper (carmel is VERY sticky - so next time I may sprinkle flour on the sheets!).
11
Using a teaspoon, drop cookies onto parchment -- allowing 2 inches between cookies (they spread).
12
Roll in Chopped Peanuts (OPTIONAL!).
13
Bake at 375 for 8-12 minutes (my gas oven likes to play with me!).
14
Cool on the baking sheet for at least 5 minutes. I found that peeling the cookies off (take hot parchment paper in hand, turn upside down and peel cookie off) leads to less cookie stuck on the parchment - and a lot of creative swearing as you try to cool your hands down!
