Carmel Apple Cookies

The Carmel Apple Cake was such a huge hit.  The girls at school were asking for it.  However with sauce it does not travel as easy as say a cookie so here is my answer.   Cookies are so easy for travel and I am excited to take them to volleyball tonight.

    Ingredients for cake
    1 and 3/4 cups unbleached all purpose flour
    1 tsp baking powder
    1/4 tsp salt
    1 very large organic apple, peeled, cored and chopped into small cubes
    2 large eggs
    3/4 cup sugar
    3 tbsp Frangelico 
    1 tsp vanilla
    6 tbs  butter, melted 
    12 chewy carmel candies

Sift four baking powder and salt.  Melt butter and mix in to flour with a whisk until crumbly.  

Mix eggs, sugar, frangelico, and vanilla until creamed.  slowly add mixture to flour mixture whisking all the time.  Continue mixing until smooth.

Add your chopped apple and fold into the batter.  

I covered my cookie sheet with foil and greased it. Pre-heat oven to 350.

Now comes the tricky part.  This works easiest if you use two of your silverware spoons.  I used one of my larger spoons and one smaller. Scoop batter with the larger spoon push a carmel candy into the middle and use your smaller spoon to cover with batter and push on to your cookie sheet.   I was able to make 12 cookies, I made them large enough that my carmel was in the middle of each cookie. 

Bake cookies for 8 to 10 mins.  Keep an eye on them.
