I have been so in the mood for fall to show up for the past couple weeks! 🙂 We had a 70* day the other day and it was the most magical moment! Unfortunately, it didn’t last but that day and we have 100* days the rest of the week. It just makes me sad lol!
So my youngest and I decided to get baking today and I am in the mood for pumpkin, or apple pie or soups or anything that is fall related. My taste buds are ahead of the season and I was ready to get down to business satisfying them. I was craving some apple crisp, you know the buttery crispy goodness that just screams FALL!!! Yea, that’s the one. BUT I wanted to do something a smidge different. My kids hate apple crisp, I know what the heck is wrong with their tastebuds?!?!? I’m hoping they grow out of that soon!
We decided to experiment with some Caramel Apple Crisp Cookies! YES! You read that right, how much goodness can you fit in one title?!?! Well here it is! AND OMG THEY ARE DELICIOUS!!!!!!
Caramel Apple Crisp Cookies
PRE-HEAT OVEN TO 350*
- 2 sticks melted butter
- 1 whole cut apple
- 2 1/2 TBSP of milk
- 2 eggs
- 3 tsp of Caramel extract
- 1 cup white sugar
- 1 cup brown sugar (packed)
- 1 1/2 cups flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 4 cups whole grain quick oats
- 2 TBSP Cinnamon
In a mixing bowl, stir together: the melted butter, apples and milk until the butter is cooled off enough to add eggs. Add eggs, caramel extract and cinnamon. Stir until ingredients are completely mixed. Start to slowly add the white sugar. Followed by the brown sugar. Mixing until no clumps remain.
In a separate bowl sift the flour and baking soda together. Slowly begin to add this mixture into the liquid. Stir in the oats.
Drop rounded tablespoons, about 2 inches apart, onto greased cookie sheet. (they tend to stick, so be careful) Bake for 13-15 minutes or until they turn a golden brown!
*Some of mine fell apart and yours might also. But these are my favorite! Use them on top of a bowl of vanilla ice cream for an even yummier treat! Hope you enjoy them as much as I have. If you make them, send me a picture! I love seeing others enjoying a recipe!
I know it is too early to say this but:
HAPPY FALL!!! 😉
