Caramel Apple Cookies

December 17, 2014
It's pretty certain that I will never get the whole "right food in the right season" blog post.  It's impossible for me to get together with that whole thing.  I realize that it's Christmas season and anything having to do with caramel and apples should of been posted way back in September or October.  Heck, even, November would of made more sense.  But, December?  Not sure.  Apples are still OK, right?


Well, they are cookies.  Any kind of cookie is good in December.  That's the way I see it.  These cookies also don't have to made with apples.  The base is soft and has a great buttery taste.  You could load these up with any kind of pie filling.  Cherries, strawberries, peaches.  Even change it up and drizzle chocolate instead of the caramel.   Whatever suits your fancy.
A great addition to your cookie swap this year!
