Caramel Apple Cookies
You have to make a batch of these cookies, like, immediately! They taste so good and are packed with chocolate chips, caramel chips, and dried apple. You could use freeze-dried apple cubes if you like. Fresh apple would also work – just remember to dice them up really small.
This recipe makes 40 cookies – so make sure you’ve got plenty of hungry mouths to feed with them! They store in an airtight container for about a week.

How do you make Caramel Apple Cookies?
As with most cookie recipes, preheat your oven and line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
Then using an electric mixer beat together butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla until creamy.
Then sift flour, baking soda and salt into a bowl and gradually add to the creamed mixture, beating on low speed until combined.
Then stir in the chocolate chips, caramel chips, and apple pieces until incorporated.
Use a small ice cream scoop to measure out the cookie dough, placing the cookie dough balls onto the prepared baking sheets about 3″ apart.
Bake for 10 and remove from the oven. Leave to cool for a few minutes on the sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
