The Holiday season is a time when families get together to enjoy each other’s company, and give thanks for the year that has passed, but perhaps one of the single most important aspects of the holiday season that everyone looks forward to is food and yummy treats. This extraordinary Caramel dipped Apple cookies are not only sweet that fill the home with an apple cinnamon aroma that screams "Christmas!" These little gems are sure to be gone in a second, here is the recipe:

Things You will Need:

For the cookies: 1/2 cup solid vegetable shortening 1-1/4 cup packed light brown sugar 1 large egg 1/2 apple juice, divided 2-1/4 cup all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1/4 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon sugar 1-1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves 1 cup apples, peeled and shredded( Golden delicious work great!) For the Caramel Frosting: 2 to 3 tablespoons margarine, softened 1/3 cup packed light brown sugar 2 tablespoons water 1-1/2 cup powdered sugar 2 to 4 tablespoons milk 5 tablespoons finely crushed walnuts





Pre-heat oven to 350 F and grease baking sheet(s). In a large mixing bowl, prepare your shortening mixture and beat shortening and brown sugar until blended then beat in the egg and apple juice.


In another mixing bowl(medium should do), stir together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and cloves. Then slowly add in the flour mixture into shortening mixture. Finally, stir in the remaining 1/4 cup apple juice and the apples


To bake these little gems drop teaspoonful amounts approximately 2 inches apart onto a prepared baking sheet(s). Bake a 10 to 12 minutes. Cool on wire racks


To make the caramel frosting you will need to heat the margarine, brown sugar, and water over medium high heat in saucepan, stirring until sugar dissolves.


Remove caramel from heat and beat in powdered sugar and enough milk to make mixture a spreadable consistency; use immediately. If frosting begins to harden, return to low heat and stir in more milk.


Spread frosting on each cookie and sprinkle with crushed walnuts or other nut of your choosing( sprinkles work well too!)



Hint for a fun twist: Roll cookie dough into balls; insert a popsicle stick into center. Place Balled dough and stick on cookie sheet and flatten, paying attention to the popsicle stick and that it is securely in the center and now you have a cookie on a stick( much like a caramel apple), which works out well as you can dip the cookie into the caramel.
