Caramel Appledoodles

Not to brag, but I think I’m currently the most-loved person in the dialysis unit right now. Two weeks ago I brought in Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies that everyone inhaled and then yesterday, Caramel Appledoodles. Before noon, I was being all but demanded to abandon my work and print many, many copies of this recipe. Obviously, I was happy to oblige. Obviously.

My coworker and office mate even said to me, “Firstly, what is in those cookies? Second, will you marry me?” Love it. As someone who also loves to cook and appreciates not only great food but healthy meals, she and I decided that we would probably make a great couple. It’s always good to have a back up plan (just kidding, husband-oh-mine! Kinda…). I mean, she does dishes…that’s impressive. Plus, she likes koos koos.

Anyways, I had my first -doodle experience last year around this time — it’s our anniversary, if you will. I made a -doodle for the first time ever, which was also the first time I ate a -doodle..ever. I know. My loss. But ever since the maple snickerdoodles from last year, I’ve been a convert.

And I’m not new to caramel + apple in cookie form. I’ve made Cooking Light’s Caramel Apple Oatmeal Cookies, and those were awesome. Yet, these were probably just a bit more delicious…and a slight savings in the calorie department (a most important detail this time of year…).

These cookies are soft with the perfect amount of chew from the caramels. I can definitely see why they were submitted for this month’s Thanksgiving dessert swap. Though, apples and caramel are kind of like the color black – always in style, always a safe choice.

These were simple to make and so, so good. Addicting, really. That’s why they went to work in the first place (but let’s not tell them that, mmmkay?) ;)

    Wow, you are just too nice!! Where do you find the time to cook so much?!?! It’s amazing. I love slot machines online love love snickerdoodles, and haven’t had one in way too long. BUT a caramel appledoodle sounds even BETTER (if that’s possible). Oh, I have to do a food demo for a group of people with pkd. Any ideas???

  2. says

    Oh my, I need to get some soft caramels. I love snickerdoodles. I haven’t had them in a really long time so I’m even more interested in these. But really, caramel apple is an awesome combo, and put inside one of my favorite cookies? Awesome!

  3. says

    I can’t say I’ve ever had a “doodle” before. I actually don’t know what they are (off to Google I go). But I’m very happy to hear these were such a hit. :)

    Thanks for being part of the recipe swaps!

    I just made plain old snickerdoodles yesterday….if I would have seen this recipe, I totally would have done this instead! They look divine!!! Mmmmmmmmm…..I bought a bag of those caramel bits…still undetermined as to how I am going to use them..but this recipe would have been perfect for them. I imagine chopping caramels is sticky business! Have a great day, Nicole!

    You referenced maple snickerdoodles which sound amazing. Unfortunately when I try to use the link in the recipe index it doesn’t work. Is there any way I can get the recipe? I want to make them for an upcoming holiday party. Thanks!

      I apologize. That link has been acting up forever and I just keep thinking, “Well, I’m going to post them again this year!” and I just haven’t gotten around to it yet. Here’s the recipe! :) Hope you enjoy just as much as I did!

      Maple Snickerdoodle as seen at Carrie’s Sweet Life, from Allrecipes.com

      2 cups all-purpose flour 1 1/2 tsp baking powder 1/4 tsp baking soda 1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened 1 1/2 cups white sugar, divided* 1 egg 1/4 cup + 3 Tbsp real maple syrup, divided*

      Directions:

      Preheat oven to 350

    Oops…it cut off. Here’s the rest. Let me know and I can forward you the recipe via email, too!

    Stir together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Set aside.

    In a large bowl, cream together the margarine butter and 1 cup of white sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg and 3 tablespoons maple syrup. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients until just mixed. In a small dish, mix together the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and 1/4 cup maple syrup. Roll dough into 1 inch balls, and roll the balls in the sugar mixture. Place cookies 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets.

    Bake 8 to 9 minutes in the preheated oven. Cookies will be crackly on top and look wet in the middle. Remove from cookie sheets to cool on wire racks. Yield: 3 dozen.

    So, I made these. They taste REALLY good. But, just as a note and so others learn from my lesson, don’t let the dough sit overnight. I made the dough last night and wasn’t able to bake them because of the hour wait while the dough chilled. So, when I went to bake them today, the dough was incredibly moist and had given off a bunch of liquid. I stirred it back in and added 1/4-1/3 cup of flour to get to manageable. They were too moist to roll into balls, so I just dropped the dough into the sugar mixture and rolled it around until it was covered and “ball-like.” They really spread during cooking and are still a little sticky. I will try again and see how the dough cooperates as I do like the taste.

    These were fantastic! Loved every bit of them! So chewy and delicious! They’re even great cold (my boyfriend put his in the fridge for some reason, but they were still great)!

    Definitely something that will become a normal part of my fall baking!
