Carmel Apple Cookies

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!

How to Make Carmel Apple Cookies


  • 1Cream butter.
  • 2Add sugars and blend.
  • 3Add vanilla. Blend.
  • 4Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  • 5Gradually beat in dry ingredients.
  • 6Chop apples (or crumble them!) and stir into mix.
  • 7Add carmel bits. Mix to distribute.
  • 8Place mixture into a bowl. Chill for 2 hours (or overnight).
  • 9Preheat oven to 375F.
  • 10Line cookie sheets with parchment paper (carmel is VERY sticky - so next time I may sprinkle flour on the sheets!).
  • 11Using a teaspoon, drop cookies onto parchment -- allowing 2 inches between cookies (they spread).
  • 12Roll in Chopped Peanuts (OPTIONAL!).
  • 13Bake at 375 for 8-12 minutes (my gas oven likes to play with me!).
  • 14Cool 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!
