These cookies are delicious and perfect for this time of year. I didn't have caramel baking bits, so I substituted chopped caramels. When hot, the cookies tend to stick to the cooling rack so I put parchment paper on my cooling rack as well as my baking sheet. This recipe was adapted from Adventures in the Kitchen.
Oatmeal Caramel Apple Cookies
1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
3/4 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
3 cups old fashioned oats
6 oz Kraft caramel baking bits (I substituted 3/4 cup chopped caramels)
1 1/2 cups honey crisp apples peeled and chopped
1. In a bowl combine the flour, salt, baking powder and baking soda.
2. Place the butter and sugars in a stand mixer and beat 2-3 minutes.
3. Add vanilla, then eggs and mix for 2-3 minutes more. Scrape down the sides of the mixing bowl with a spatula.
4. Pour in the flour mixture, then the oats and combine just until blended. Mix in the apples and caramel baking bits with a wooden spoon.
5. Place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.
6. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Scoop dough onto the baking sheet leaving 1 1/2 inches between dough as the cookies will spread.
Bake for 12-15 minutes. Let the cookies cool for 1 minute on the cookie sheet before moving to a cooling rack.
