Caramel Apple Snickerdoodles

Caramel apples are my weakness! As soon as the fall season recipes started popping up on Pinterest, I couldn’t stop thinking about caramel apples. I started thinking about all of the different ways you could make caramel apples. One thought lead to another and before I knew it I was playing in the kitchen again.

I think you are going to be surprised at how much these cookies taste like the real thing.  They are so addicting that I had to take half the batch to my neighbors before I ate them all.

With love from my kitchen to yours,
