Caramel Apple Cookies

What you need: 

3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar
1 cup vegan margarine
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 flax egg (1 tablespoon flax seed and 3 tablespoons water)
2 cups + 5 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
For the apples:
2 apples, diced (depends on size of your apples.)
1 tablespoon margarine
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 generous tablespoons brown sugar

What you do: 

First, make this caramel recipe, but add a pinch of salt and 3/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract.
Make the apple yummy part: Melt the margarine in a pan over medium heat. Add the apples, sugar, and cinnamon. Cook until apples are tender and yummy. Let cool before adding to dough!!!! That is super important.
Now for the cookies: Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Beat sugars, margarine, vanilla, and "egg" in a bowl.
Sift in the dry ingredients and beat.
Mix in the yummy apples (you want enough apples so that there are apple pieces in each cookie. you might need more apples or fewer), and drop dough by half tablespoons onto a cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until done. Let cool.
When cookies are cool and caramel sauce is sorta cool (not one hundred percent cold, but not right off the stove hot), drizzle the caramel over the cookies.

This looks great but the instructions aren`t clear... what ingredients belong to the caramel part?


Made for a friend still adjusting to veganism. Labor- intensive but good. I preferred baking them for about 20 minutes to give them better color and firmness.


These definitely take some time especially if you make the condensed milk as well as everything else. The cookies alone I think tasted fantastic, mine turned out kinda soft which was great because they will make fantastic ice cream sandwich cookies (minus the caramel). The caramel topping turned out kind of chewier than normal, not sure if I cooked it too long or did something wrong. Still tastes really great, thanks!


Seriously, these cookies were amazing!! Everyone I've given one to has asked for the recipe and asked that I make them again and again.

They were a bit time-intensive (due to all the steps), but so worth it in the end. I used applesauce rather than a flax egg, and it seemed to work fine. Also, I used the recipe for sweetened condensed milk on this website; it worked great. Finally, the only two things I noticed were that my cookies were awfully flat (not a big deal, just fyi) and that the caramel stuck to everything, including the cooling rack the cookies were on.
