Caramel Apple Cookies -

The Improve Cooking Challenge  How would you like the first challenge of a new group to be baking or cooking with apples and caramel?  Yep, sounds pretty good.  In fact, it is absolutely delicious.  I made a cookie that truly surprised me.  I thought it would be rather bland and plain but it turned out to be chewy and delicious.

 Caramel Apple Cookies  Adapted from Granny's Mountain


Ingredients:

1/3 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup margarine, at room temperature

1 egg

1-1/4 cups all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 cup dried apple pieces, chopped

1/2 cup caramel chips 



Method:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

In medium bowl mix flour, baking soda and salt.

In separate bowl, mix sugars and butter. Add egg, mixing just until blended.

Add flour mixture and combine well.

Mix in caramel chips and apple.

Using a teaspoon size cookie scoop, drop batter about 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet, lined with parchment paper.

Bake for 12-14 minutes or until edges begin to brown.

Let cool completely on wire rack.
