Seamore the Seal decided to make Caramel Apple Cookies with some of the Apples Betty the Bunny Picked. This recipe has less sugar than other recipes because the apples add a lot of sweetness- not to mention the caramel! Yum! It's a great treat to bring to church- both adults and children love them!
Ingredients You Will Need:1 Cup Oatmeal
2 Cups Flour
1/3 Cup White Sugar
1/3 Cup Brown Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1 Teaspoon Cinnamon
3/4 Cup Softened Butter
2 Farm-Picked Apples (or 1 Store Apple- they're bigger)
1 Tablespoon Vanilla (Mexican Vanilla is best)
2 Tablespoons Apple Cider (This is not necessary- but adds extra flavor. :))
1 Bag Caramel Squares
Makes about 26 cookies.
Mix dry ingredients together.
Cut the apple(s) into quarters. (This makes it easier to grate them- plush then you don't have to worry about seeds.) Grate apple(s) into a bowl.
Add wet ingredients to bowl. Mix.
If you want the dough to be easier to manage place in fridge for 1 hour. Cut caramels in half.
Form dough into small balls. Place caramel half on ball.
Cover with more dough. Place dough on wax-paper covered cookie sheets.
Cook for 12-14 minutes.
Ready for delicious cookies! If you're not serving them fresh, it's a good idea to microwave them for a couple seconds so the caramel is always melty and gooey.
Shortcut Section:Instead of using real apples and grating them (though it really doesn't take much time at all) replace 3/4 cup of butter with 3/4 cup of apple sauce.
