Caramel Apple Toffee Cookies

Caramel Apple Toffee Cookies

What happened to fall?

Seriously, just a few days ago, I was wearing shorts and a tee shirt and then this morning, I get in the truck and it’s 40 degrees outside. Burrrr!

Where was that month of mildly cooler weather that we could open the windows, air out the house, drape a sweater over our shoulders for fashion not to keep from freezing. I really look forward to those couple of  fashion friendly weeks. Before I have to drag out the winter coat and cover up all my cute sweaters.

This seems to happen every year here in Georgia.

If we’re lucky, we get one full week to save on our electric bills. One week where we can turn off the air conditioning before we turn on the heat.

At least thats how my friends and neighbors do it. Me, I’ll tough it out. I’ll resist turning on the heat for as long as I possibly can.

I bring out the throw blankets and place them all over the house. On the back of the sofas, over the comfy chair in the basement. The kids all have extra blankets on their beds. It is nice snuggling on the sofa together (to keep warm) and watch tv together as a family (to keep warm.)

One other thing I do when the weather suddenly changes like this.

I bake cookies. It’s all part of the “mom plan” to force the family to gather together in the kitchen, warmed by an oven heated to 350 degrees.

Caramel Apple Toffee Cookies

It works every time.

Since it is fall, I wanted a fall inspired cookie. I always loved caramel apples as a kid but lets be honest, nobody eats all the apple, at least I never did. Just to sticky, messy. I’d nibble all around the apple, trying to get all the caramel I could.

Eating it a caramel apple as a cookie is just easier. Maybe too easy.

At least with the apple chips, I can pretend these cookies are healthy.

  1. Caramel flavor? Heath bits? I’m in! I’d have a hard time controlling myself with these.

  2. Beverly Allen says:

    Which part of the store do I find Crispy Apple Cgips? Is that like a dried apple?

    • Hi Beverly, I find them usually in the fresh fruit/vegetable area but this last bag I bought at Aldi’s and I found then right when I walked in the door.

  3. This makes me laugh, I use the oven to stay warm all of the time! As for the cookies, I love how you’ve got the caramel apple flavour in a more accessible form!

  4. Caramel apple flavor without all the mess! Love it!!

  5. Would like to try this cookie recipe. Where do you find Apple Chips? I don’t believe I’ve ever seen them?

  6. These look great 🙂

  7. There is so much I love about these cookies!!!

  8. MMMMMMMMM – these look divine! I love caramel and apples so to see it in a cookie – even better!

  9. These sound great. Where did you find the caramel extract? I don’t think I have ever seen it at any of the stores where I shop. Could I substitute some caramel “bits”?

  10. I found the caramel extract at Wal-Mart in the spice/baking aisle. My granddaughter and I just baked these cookies and the kitchen smelled fabulous!! The cookies are wonderful but I really didn’t get the apple flavor that I was expecting. I used dried granny smith chips(also from Wal-Mart) and when we nibbled a few from the bag they were really tasty, but seemed to lose some of their flavor during cooking. If you are expecting these to taste like a real caramel apple, you will probably be disappointed. I will make these again, but I will substitute pecans for the apples. I am thankful for the recipe and very grateful for the “heads up” about the caramel extract.
