Apple Caramel Cookies
Very cold , windy ,grey autumn day. Wonderful weather to spend the day baking.
Wanted to use some apples, cinnamon and skor bits .This is what I came up with using a tried and true basic cookie recipe with the additions of my choice.
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups flour, all purpose
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup peeled medium chopped apple
1 small pkg. skor bits
Cream together butter and sugars.
Beat in eggs and vanilla.
Combine flour, soda, cinnamon and salt.
Gradually add flour mixture to creamed ingredients. Fold in skor bits and apple chunks.
Drop by tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet , I recommend using parchment paper ,1 tray I used parchment one I did not .Bake at 375 for 10 - 12 minutes , watch carefully so they don't burn. Let cool for 3 -4 minutes to firm up then remove from pan.
These turned out to spread quite a bit but the flavour is great, a nice soft and chewy spiced cookie.
