Caramel Stuffed Apple Cider Cookies

Picture of Caramel Stuffed Apple Cider Cookies
I eat a lot of cookies and these are definitely some of the tastier, more addictive cookies I have made. I found the recipe from Scrambled Henfruit, so they deserve all the credit (and also for the cover picture since I am horrid at taking pictures). But this recipe must be shared! I have a couple alterations as well...  Enjoy :)

*sorry in advance for the poor picture quality, I wasn't originally going to document this but then did so with my phone because it looked so tasty*

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients
  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 box (7.4 oz) Alpine Spiced Apple Cider Instant Original Drink mix -not sugar free- 6 packets (I found this in my grocery store near the hot chocolate mixes.) The original recipe called for all 10 packets, but I found this too strong. I should probably be adding brown sugar to compensate but oh well...
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 bag Kraft Caramels (14 oz)

I have to try these! Thank you!
I made these for Christmas this year and they were fantastic! They were amazing fresh and stored great, too. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe, it's a new favorite.
This recipe is useless for anyone outside the US, due to the specialised ingredients used. Raw or basic ingredients are best for Instructable recipes.

Which ingredient are you referring to? I know I have bought the apple cider powder packets in parts of Europe and in Canada. And I would be completely astounded if caramel only existed in the US. And I assume you can find the rest of the basic ingredients. If you are having trouble finding ingredients, I would suggest asking for help...
So awesome. Not hard to make and unique and tasty!
These are amazing fresh out of the oven. Once they are cool the caramel stiffens back up and gets pretty darn chewy. But just reheat them again and you're good to go!

I'd seen the thumbnail for this on Instructables' Facebook, and couldn't wrap my head around how to accomplish cookies with a filling. I finally had some time today, so I checked it out...it makes so much sense now! These look amazing, well done.
These look delectable. Cooking them right now, more info to come soon
why no real apple cider? Processed ingredients are killing us. The real thing is much more appealing to me

go for it? you want it to be a dry ingredient... I admit I do not know if you can get "real apple cider" in powder form. I would be glad to switch to more sustainable practices if you gave your full argument concerning apple ciders... and I'm curious to learn more.

what? .. no "pilfer baked goods" stat for Moka?
Onyx Ibex (author)  Lorddrake2 years ago
ah, but you see it is far more complex than that. She pilfers baked goods plenty, but a majority of her plunders are unbaked goods and her preferred un-edible goods... I think she has also paid off the grandparents.
