Caramel Apple Cider Cookies Recipe

You should serve them with these caramel apple cider cookies because apple cider is the traditional autumnal beverage.

Prep: 10min

Total: 25min

Yield: 30


  • 1 cup unsalted butter (softened)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 7. Alpine Spiced Apple Cider Instant Original Drink Mix, 4 oz. box (10 packets; located next to hot cocoa mix).
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 (14 ounce) bag Kraft chewy caramels


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. To prevent the caramel from sticking to the cookie sheet’s bottom, line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Mix the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and cinnamon in a small bowl.
  3. Cream the butter, sugar, salt, and all ten packages of apple cider drink mix powder with an electric mixer until they are light and fluffy.
  4. Beat in eggs, one at a time.
  5. Add vanilla and mix well.
  6. Gradually add flour mixture to butter/egg mixture. Mix until just combined.
  7. Scoop out a walnut-sized (2 tablespoons) ball of cookie dough.
  8. In the palm of your hand, slightly press the dough ball down. Put the unwrapped caramel in the middle of your dough and completely enclose it with the dough.
  9. Roll the dough into balls and space them about three inches apart on cookie sheets covered in parchment paper.
  10. Bake for 11 to 14 minutes, or until the edges are just barely browned. It’s okay if they don’t appear perfectly finished in the middle.
  11. Carefully remove the parchment from the baking sheet and place it on the counter after the cookies have finished baking.
  12. Allow cookies to partially cool on the parchment. Carefully twist cookies off of parchment when they are cool enough to be firm but still slightly warm, and then let them continue cooling upside-down on the parchment or on a cookie rack. If they’re not turned over to cool, caramel may dribble out the bottom.
  13. Makes around 2-3 dozen cookies. Eat at room temperature or slightly warmed in the microwave.

Caramel Apple Cider Cookies

Caramel Apple Cider Cookies Recipe

The thick, chewy cookies with apple cider in every bite are called caramel apple cider cookies. They are brushed with a mixture of reduced apple cider and twice-dipped in apple pie spice. These tempting cookies are brimming with autumnal flavor.

Prep: 45min

Yield: 18


  • 1 and 2/3 cup apple cider
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 6 tbsp salted butter, cubed
  • 1/2 cup + 1 tbsp heavy cream
  • pinch flaky sea salt
  • 3 tbsp reduced apple cider
  • 1 cup salted butter, softened at room temperature
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 and 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3 tbsp reduced apple cider
  • All-purpose flour, 2 and 3/4 cups and 2 tablespoons ((415 grams))
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 and 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp cloves
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 and 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/8 tsp allspice
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves
  • 3 tbsp reduced apple cider
  • 2 tbsp salted butter, melted


  1. In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, cook your apple cider while stirring occasionally until it is reduced to 1/2 cup and 1 tbsp. This will take about 20 minutes. Allow it to cool in the refrigerator until it is cool, not hot. Make the salted caramel sauce by following my recipe here. Stir in the apple cider last. Make it up to a week in advance and store in the refrigerator, or allow it to cool to room temperature before using.
  2. To make the cookie dough, cream the softened butter in a large bowl using an electric mixer set to medium-high speed. For about a minute, combine the sugars and butter after adding them. Mix in the apple cider, vanilla, and eggs until barely combined. the final addition, combine the dry ingredients until a dough forms. To make it simpler to roll the dough into balls, chill for 30 minutes.
  3. Scoop
  4. Bake the Cookies: Preheat your oven to 350° F. Put some silicone baking mats or parchment paper on some cookie sheets. Mix the spices for coating with the sugar in a small bowl. Roll the dough balls generously in the mixture of cinnamon, sugar, and apple pie spice. Place six to eight cookies per sheet, allowing space for them to spread out. Bake for 11-13 minutes. When tapped with a fingertip, the edges should appear and feel set, and the centers should be puffed and appear slightly underdone. They will set up as they cool.
  5. Finish the Cookies: After a few minutes of cooling on the baking sheets, move the cookies to a cooling rack to finish cooling completely or until they are cool enough to handle. Toss the remaining apple pie spice sugar from earlier (add it to a plate) with the melted butter and apple cider in a medium bowl. Next, generously brush each cookie with the mixture.
  6. Cookies can be kept in the refrigerator for about a week in an airtight container after being drizzled with apple cider caramel. (The caramel needs to be refrigerated. (Prior to serving, allow cookies to come back to room temperature.
