Caramel Apple Cider Cookies
(recipe from Gimme some Oven!)
Ingredients:
• 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
• 1 cup granulated sugar
• 1/2 teaspoon salt 
• 1 (7.4 ounce) box Alpine Spiced Apple Cider Instant Original Drink Mix (*not sugar free*)
• 2 eggs
• 1 tsp. vanilla extract
• 1 tsp. baking soda
• 1/2 tsp. baking powder
• 1 tsp. cinnamon
• 3 cups all-purpose flour
• 1 (14 ounce) bag Kraft Caramels, unwrapped
Directions:
• Preheat oven to 350° F. Line cookie sheets with parchment or a silpat. (The melted caramel may stick to the bottom if you just use cooking spray on a plain baking sheet.)
• In a small bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. With an electric mixer, cream together butter, sugar, salt and all 10 packages of apple cider drink mix powder, until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla and mix well. Gradually add flour mixture to butter/egg mixture. Mix until just combined.

• Scoop out cookie dough ball about the size of a walnut (about 2 tablespoons). Flatten the ball of dough slightly in the palm of your hand. Press the unwrapped caramel into the center of your dough and seal the dough around it, covering it completely. Shape the dough into a ball, and place on parchment covered cookie sheets about 3 inches apart.

• Bake 12-14 minutes, or until very lightly browned around the edges. Once the cookies are done, carefully slide the parchment or silpat off of the baking sheet right out onto the counter. Allow cookies to partially cool on the parchment/silpat. When cookies are cool enough to be firm but still slightly warm, carefully twist off of parchment and allow to finish cooling upside down (either on the parchment/silpat or on a rack).
• Yield: Approximately 4 dozen, depending on the size of your dough.

S’mores Cookies
(recipe from Tracey’s Culinary Adventures)
Ingredients:
1 cup graham cracker crumbs (from about 7-8 whole crackers)
1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 oz (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
1 large egg, at room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup mini marshmallows (approximately, I didn’t exactly measure how many I used)
2 Hershey Bars (or other milk chocolate bars), coarsely chopped

Directions:
Preheat oven to 350 F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a medium bowl, whisk the graham cracker crumbs, flour, baking soda, and salt together. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and both sugars on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Beat in the egg and vanilla. With the mixer on low, add the flour mixture and beat just until combined. Stir in the chocolate chips.
Drop heaping tablespoons of the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart. Bake for 9 minutes (I did 1 tray at a time), then remove from the oven and quickly, but gently push a few marshmallows and a couple of pieces of chocolate into the top of each cookie. Return the cookies to the oven and bake for an additional 2-3 minutes, or until the edges are set. Cool the cookies on the baking sheets for about 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
