    Cream the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
    Add the egg and beat until incorporated.
  2. Now add the whiskey and mix. The mixture will look curdled.
  3. Add the salt, baking powder, baking soda, and nutmeg and beat until incorporated.
    Scrape down the sides of the bowl and mix again.
  4. Add the oatmeal flour and all-purpose flour slowly while the mixer is going.
    Mix until all the flour is incorporated.
    Add the grated apple, caramel pieces, and walnuts, mix until incorporated.

  6. Allow to cool for 5 minutes before removing from the foil or parchment. The caramel may stick so remove carefully to not break the cookies.
