I pinned The Cooking Photographer’s Carmel Stuffed AppleCider cookie recipe to my Pinterest recipe board because it looks amazing. Like most things I pin on Pinterest for inspiration, I didn’t think I’d make them. I just like to look at them.
I made an exception for these little caramel stuffed gems.
Soon After several bags of Werthers Original Chewy Caramels landed in my mailbox courtesy of BuzzAgent.
It’s fate I tell you! Fate!
I made the cookies.
I made a few substitutions to The Cooking Photographers’ original recipe. I didn’t have nor did I want to buy powdered apple cider mix. Instead I whirred 1 tablespoon of all spice and cloves, 2 cinnamon sticks and ¼ cup of brown sugar in the blender and added them to the batter.
I used both the traditional Werther’s Original Chewy Caramels and the Carmel Chocolates in the center of the cookies because I’m a wild woman.
I used whole wheat flour instead of white to see what it would do. I like the extra nutty taste the wheat flour give the cookies. Paired with the caramel it tastes like fall.
They smell like heaven when baking.
And taste divine!
