FALL RECIPE: CHOCOLATE CARAMEL STUFFED APPLE CIDER COOKIES

chocolate caramel stuffed apple cider cookies // fall cookie recipe

when it comes to fall, we’re just as excited about pumpkin spice as the next white girls. ok not really. we actually think some of us should calm down with our all pumpkin spice everything while it’s 90 degrees outside habits, but we’ll save that for another post. for now, let’s focus on some underrated fall flavorings with one of our favorite, decadence-bordering-on-ridiculous fall recipes: chocolate caramel apple cider cookies.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 5 packets instant apple cider drink mix
  • 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 rolos

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • preheat oven to 350° and line cookie sheets with parchment paper
  • in a small bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon
  • using electric mixer, cream together butter, sugar, salt and apple cider mix until fluffy
  • beat in eggs one at a time. add vanilla and mix well
  • gradually add flour mixture to butter/egg mixture, mixing unti just combined
  • refrigerate dough for 30 minutes. use this time to unwrap entire bag of rolos, trying your hardest to eat less than ⅓ of the bag
  • scoop out tablespoonfuls of dough and wrap around individual rolos, covering the rolo completely. place on cookie sheet 2″ apart
  • bake 13-15 minutes (you don’t want these to be browned on the edges, just barely golden – they are CHEWY cookies!)
  • let cool on parchment then transfer to wire wrack. stuff face and jump in piles of leaves and shit.
