Caramel Apple Cider Cookies

Bake up the perfect treat full of fall's lushest flavors!

Mandy Merriman with Baking with Blondie shares her recipe for Caramel Apple Cider Cookies.



  • 1 C unsalted butter room temperature
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 1 7.4 oz box of Alpine Spiced Apple Cider Instant Drink Mix
  • (not sugarfree) = 10 packets
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1 t baking soda
  • 1/2 t baking powder
  • 1/2 t cinnamon
  • 3 C all-purpose flour
  • 1 C caramel balls


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line your baking sheet with parchment paper. Set aside for later. 2. In the bowl of your stand mixer, add butter, sugar, salt & all 10 packets of apple cider mix. Beat until smooth and fully incorporated. Add eggs, vanilla, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon then mix on low. Add the flour a 1/2 C at a time until just mixed in. Toss in caramel balls. Mix until combined. Don't overmix. 3. Scoop dough into 1 inch balls, place on a cookie sheet about 2 inches apart. Bake for 12 minutes. They will be light in color - if you cook too long, they'll be hard. Trust me. Slightly undercooked is perfect. 4. Remove from the oven, let sit for a minute, then transfer cookies to a cooling rack. Store in an airtight container with a slice of white bread. Serve warm, if possible. (we nuke ours for 12 seconds for one cookie).
