How to Make Caramel Apple Bites


  • 1In a small saucepan, combine filling ingredients. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened; set aside to cool.

    In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in egg. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour and salt. Gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.

    Shape dough into 1-in. balls. Flatten and place 1/4 teaspoon filling in center of each. Fold dough over filling and reshape into balls. Place 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets.
