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.                                                                                                                              http://www.the-girl-who-ate-everything.com/2011/11/caramel-apple-cider-cookies.html
