Caramel Stuffed Apple Cider Cookies

  • 1 c. softened butter
  • 1 c.granulated sugar
  • 1/2 t.salt
  • 1 box (7.4 oz) Alpine Spiced Apple Cider Instant Original Drink mix -not sugar free- all 10
  • packets (I found this in my grocery store near the hot chocolate mixes.)
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t. vanilla extract
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1/2 t. baking powder
  • 1 t. ground cinnamon
  • 3 c. all purpose flour
  • 1 bag Kraft Caramels (14 oz)

· Preheat oven to 350° F. Line cookie sheets with parchment. (You really need the parchment!)

· In a small bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon.

· cream together butter, sugar, salt and all 10 packages of apple cider drink mix powder, until light and fluffy.

· Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla and mix well.

· Gradually add flour mixture to butter/egg mixture. Mix until just combined.

· Refrigerate for about an hour. 

· When you are ready to bake, unwrap your caramels.

· Scoop out cookie dough ball about the size of a walnut.

· Flatten the ball of dough slightly in the palm of your hand. Press the unwrapped caramel into the center of your dough and seal the dough around it, covering it completely. Place on parchment covered cookie sheets 2 inches apart.

· Bake 12-14 minutes, or until very lightly browned around the edges. Once the cookies are done, slide the parchment off of the baking sheet right out onto the counter. Allow cookies to partially cool on the parchment. When cookies are cool enough to be firm but still slightly warm, carefully twist off of parchment and allow to finish cooling upside down (either on the parchment or on a rack.)
