This weekend, I made some caramel apple cider cookies. I found the recipe on Six Sisters' Stuff through Pinterest; I pinned the recipe last fall, but I felt it was too late in the season to make these cookies (it was more pumpkin fall time than apple fall time, if you know what I mean). So I HAD to make them this year, and I knew the first weekend in fall was PERFECT. I have been wanting to try more recipes from Pinterest anyway, so I've made it a loose goal to try a new recipe each week, and if it turns out alright, take part of them up to work. I hate wasting food, but I also hate gorging myself on rich foods, so it's a win-win situation. Everyone is always sharing food at work, so I feel like Zach and I should give back.
I brought half of the cookies in on Monday morning. There were about twenty. Most were gone by the end of the day! Everyone commented that they liked how they were unusual but familiar and tasty. I would have to agree. I altered the recipe a bit: I cut the caramels in half and rolled them out so they would disperse throughout the cookie better. They taste just like fall with a crunchy exterior and chewy, caramel center. Very interesting but delicious! All of the cookies at work were gone by Tuesday, and we only have seven left (out of our 22) today. :)
