Yummy Caramel-Apple Cookies

We tried out this new recipe that I found in my Parents magazine this morning...yummy!

Caramel-Apple Cookies

2 sticks salted butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
½ cup packed brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 2/3 cups flour
1 cup graham cracker crumbs
2 tsp. baking powder
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. cinnamon
1 small apple, peeled, cored, and finely chopped
1 cup vanilla caramels
3 Tbs. whipping cream

Make It:
      Preheat oven to 350.  In a bowl, beat butter on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Beat in sugars until fluffy.  Then add eggs and vanilla.

I don't know why but my little helper thought it was pretty funny that the mixture had to be "fluffy."
In a medium bowl, stir together flour, cracker crumbs, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.  Add to butter mixture and beat until combined.  Stir in apple.
Shape dough into 1 inch balls.  Arrange balls 2 inches apart on cookie sheets.  Bake for 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned.  Remove and let cool on wire racks.
In a bowl, mix caramels and cream.  Microwave on high for 30 to 60 seconds or until nearly melted, stirring once.  Stir until smooth.  Drizzle over cookies; serve when hardened.

OK - I cheated, I had caramel sauce in the fridge...

...it tasted pretty yummy to us (hardened or not).
