I adapted this recipe from The Cooking Photographer's "Caramel Stuffed Apple Cider Cookies." (thecookingphotographer.com/...s.html) I don't like Kraft caramels, so I made the homemade caramel found at giverslog.com/?p=3168 to drizzle over the cookies. Amazing fall flavor!

How to Make Caramel Apple Cider Cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 1Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 2Cream butter, sugars, salt, and the 10 packets of apple cider mix until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract. In a separate bowl, mix baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon and flour. Add to butter mixture and stir until combined.
