Apple Cider Glazed Pumpkin Cookies

I found this yummy recipe on AllRecipes. I’d recommend substituting 1/2 cup brown sugar for 1/2 cup of the white sugar though. The 1.5 cups of just white sugar just isn’t enough in my opinion. I’m going to do that the next time. I changed the glaze a bit, too. I’m sure the glaze listed is fine and it is a typical glaze, but I wanted something with a bit more, zing to it. So, I used a good apple cider from a local cider mill instead of milk, and instead of adding vanilla I just added a bit more cider. I also sprinkled in some pumpkin pie spice. Just keep tasting until you like what you have 🙂 I highly recommend these cookies. You can find the recipe HERE


Spiced Apple Cider Cookies

I found a wonderful cookie. It’s a fantastic cookie, really. And, it’s now a favorite in our household. It’s called the Spiced Apple Cider Cookie and it’s filled with oh-so-yummy gooey caramel that makes you immediately think of eating a caramel apple on a stick in the fall. I found the recipe from The Girl Who Ate Everything blog. I am unsure if she is the original recipe poster. Here is her link for the recipe and to check out her site. A tip on flattening out the caramels. Use the fatty part of your palm by the base of your thumb. Any other way just plain HURTS. I exert pressure and then use fingers from both hands to pull and flatten it. If you try to put in a whole caramel you’ll be left with a rather large lump in the middle of your cookie that won’t melt too well. These freeze AMAZINGLY well. Just remove and let thaw, and they are ready to gobble up.
