Chewy Caramel Apple Chip Cookies


2 sticks butter, softened

2 cups brown sugar

1 tsp vanilla extract

1 egg

2 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tsp nutmeg

1/2 tsp ground ginger

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 apple

1 bag mini caramels (or regular sized caramels, cut up into small pieces)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the vanilla and egg and continue to beat until combined.

Whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger in another bowl.

Grate the apple with a cheese grater and squeeze out all liquid with paper towels. Add shredded apple to the flour and then add the flour mixture to the creamed butter and mix until combined. Then, add the caramel bits. Dough will be a little dry.

Roll small balls of dough out and bake on a lined baking sheet for 12-14 minutes. Let cookies completely before attempting to move them off the baking sheet or else they will fall apart!
