Fall into Baking – [Apple Caramel Cookies]

With Fall recently starting, I couldn’t help but get excited over baking some ‘fall themed’ treats.  Over the next couple months I’ll be baking some seasonally sweet treats – ranging from pumpkin flavours to subtle apple desserts.  To kick start the fall season I decided to make some ‘Apple Caramel Cookies’!  I was surprised how soft these cookies stayed, even days after I had baked them.  The apple flavour didn’t come out as much as I had liked, but the caramel was definitely a highlight of the cookies.  I used apple sauce for the apple flavour and caramel cubes for the caramel notes.  I’m definitely bookmarking this cookie recipe for future use! :).
