Caramel Apple Cider Cake Cookies...

This past Sunday morning, a friend of mine asked me for cookies. He didn't care what kind or flavor, he just wanted cookies... A perfect opportunity to try out this caramel apple cider cookie recipe I have been dying to try, with a few changes of course...

Caramel Apple Cider Cake Cookies...
recipe adapted from the cooking photographer

  • 3/4 cup softened butter
  • 1/4 cup Chobani Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 box (7.4 oz) Alpine Spiced Apple Cider Instant Original Drink mix
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 bag Werthers Caramels


  • In a stand mixer, cream room temperature butter, yogurt, sugar, salt, and all 10 packets of apple cider mix until well combined. Your mixture won't look smooth, that's alright. Beat in eggs and vanilla extract.
  • In a separate bowl, combine baking soda, baking powder and flour and mix well. Slowly add the wet mixture to the dry and mix on medium speed for 2 minutes.
  • Flour a sheet of tinfoil and place the batter in the freezer for 30-45 minutes. Don't skip this part, otherwise the dough is too sticky to work with.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and lightly grease a few baking sheets. This recipe yields over 40 cookies so you'll need more than one sheet.
  • Place tablespoon sized balls of dough on the cookie sheet about an inch or so apart from each other. Make sure to leave about 1/4 of the dough, this portion will be used to cover the caramels on each cookie.
  • Unwrap your caramels and cut each one in half.
  • Place your halved caramels on the middle of each cookie and press down. Take a small piece of dough on cover the piece of caramel. Make sure the caramel is completely covered, otherwise it will spill out onto the baking sheet in the baking process.
  • Bake the cookies for 12-14 minutes or until they turn a light golden brown.
  • Remove the sheets from the oven and quickly transfer the cookies to a cooling rack.
  • These cookies are great cool, but even better warm!
