  • Slide the cookies off by pulling the parchment paper onto a cooling rack with the cookies still on the paper

for a caramel apple look:

  • Mix a small amount of chocolate frosting into a bowl of vanilla frosting to make a light beige color
  • Once the cookies have cooled, spread the beige frosting onto the bottom of the cookie and sprinkle with nuts

Note – if using the sugar cookie recipe from the post – this will make about 2 dozen cookies

Using real caramel:

  • using soft caramel, roll it out until it is the width of the cookie

  • place on cookie and press to secure
