This was a bad year, though–here in Michigan we lost our apple crop because of the early hot weather, so no good caramel apples for us. Fortunately, we never run out of Werther’s Chewy Caramels. Here’s a recipe for Salted Caramel Apple Oatmeal cookies using apples and cinnamon instant oatmeal, so it’s super-easy to make.
1 stick (1/2 cup) salted butter, softened
1/2 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
6 packets instant apples and cinnamon-flavored oatmeal
12 Werther’s Chewy Caramels
Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Cream together butter and brown sugar. Stir in eggs and vanilla extract. Stir in flour, baking soda, and oatmeal. Form into 12 balls, place on baking sheet, and bake for seven minutes. While cookies are baking, unwrap caramels.
Leave the oven on and pull out baking sheet. Gently press one caramel on the top of each cookie. Sprinkle sea salt on top of each cookie. Put back in the oven and bake for four more minutes. Pull out, cool for a few minutes, then eat.
Makes one dozen cookies.
