For dessert on Friday night we made cookies.
Abby kept saying, "These are the funnest cookies we have ever made!"
They were not only fun to make but delicious too.
The recipe made a ton so we had a lot to share with our family!
Caramel Stuffed Apple Cider Cookies
recipe from Scrambled Henfruit
1 cup softened butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 box (10 packets) Alpine Spiced Apple Cider Instant Original Drink mix
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 cups all purpose flour
1 bag caramels (I bought mine at Sprouts and used a box full)
Preheat oven to 350 and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
In a bowl whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon.
In a mixer cream together butter, sugar, salt and all 10 packets of cider.
Beat in eggs, one at a time and add vanilla. Mix well.
Gradually add flour mixture to sugar mixture and mix until combined.
Refrigerate for about an hour. While in the fridge, unwrap your caramels (or make your kids to this! ;)).
Using a small cookie scoop, or tablespoon, scoop out dough and slightly flatten in the palm of your hand. Press the caramel in the center and cover completely. Place on parchment paper about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 12-14 minutes (it took 13 in my oven). Once done, slide the parchment paper on to the counter to cool. Once slightly cooled and edges are slightly hardened, twist cookies off parchment, turn upside down and allow to cool on cooling racks.
Makes about 4 dozen.
Both Saturday and today we ate more of these cookies! We popped them in the microwave for about 10 seconds and the caramel melted once again, perfectly!
