Gooey caramel, diced sweet, juicy apples and a hint of cinnamon in a moist and chewy cookie. Once cool, store in an airtight container. Cortland apples are recommended, but use your choice.

Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 apples - peeled, cored, and diced
  • 1 cup individually wrapped caramels, unwrapped
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground cinnamon

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Beat butter, brown sugar, white sugar, baking soda, and salt together with an electric mixer in a large mixing bowl until creamy and smooth. Beat 1 egg into the butter mixture until completely blended. Add the remaining egg and vanilla together and beat until smooth.
  2. 2 Beat as much of the flour into the butter mixture as you can with the mixer. Use a wooden spoon to stir any remaining flour into the batter.
  3. 3 Mix diced apples, caramels, and cinnamon together in a separate bowl; fold into the batter. Refrigerate batter until chilled, at least 30 minutes.
  4. 4 Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease baking sheets.
  5. 5 Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto prepared sheets.
  6. 6 Bake in preheated oven until the tops are golden brown, about 8 minutes. Cool cookies on baking sheets for 1 minute before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

  1. Terrible, just awful. Allrecipes, do y'all not test these recipes before sharing them?! Waste of time and MONEY!!!
  2. After reading other reviews and taking a look at the original personal recipe, I attempted to make these cookies. I will note that I did use gluten free flour. The batter was very wet so I added an extra 1/2 cup of flour. I also used 1 and about 3/4 large honeycrisp apples. For the - Read more ...
  3. I have to say these are beyond yummy but, they are also a hot mess! I got so annoyed with them that I threw the rest of the dough on a sheet and I am hoping for the best. These will not be added to my fall recipes that is for sure.
  4. These are so good. chewy gooey. one recipe makes 4 dozen cookies. It is a very easy recipe. Love it
  5. As suggested by another review I diced the caramels into 8 pieces each. The cookies were yummy and only a little gooey. I will definitely make them again but next time I will try substituting margarine for 1/2 of the butter to reduce the flattening.
  6. I chose to cut the caramels into tidbit pieces (1 square =8). I reasoned that such a large batch of cookies there wouldn't be enough caramels to go around! It was a success. I also found the batter too salty so added 2/3 cup extra sugar. First batch just oozed into each other. 3rd batch - Read more ...
  7. The cookies are very tasty but they are a little too gooey (I realize that gooey is in the title) but they fall apart and stick to whatever surface they are on. I'm going to try it with less butter to see if it helps.
