Cookie Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 packets Apple Cider Drink Mix
  • 1/2 cup Freeze Dried Cinnamon Apples chopped

Caramel Frosting

  • 4 oz cream cheese
  • 4 oz butter
  • 3 1/2 cups powdered sugar
  • 3 TBSP caramel sauce
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract


  • 1 cup graham crackers
  • 2 TBSP butter melted
  • 1/4 cup freeze dried cinnamon apples chopped
  • 1 TBSP Apple Cider Drink Mix



  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Use parchment paper or a silpat mat to line a baking sheet. 
  • Cream the butter, sugar and brown sugar in a stand mixer until light and fluffy (about 2-3 minutes). Scrape the sides of the bowl to make sure all ingredients are blended.
  • Add in the egg and vanilla and beat until combined.
  • Add in flour, baking soda, and apple cider mix packets. Stir until all combined. Add flour and 1/2 cup freeze dried apples and mix on low until completely combined.
  • Scoop out dough and roll into balls. Scoop out about 1 TBSPs of dough for smaller cookies (or 1/4 cup dough for BIG cookies). Place dough balls on prepared pan (12 cookies to a pan if smaller cookies) and slightly flatten with your hand to about 3/4 inch thick.
  • Bake for about 11-12 minutes. Remove from oven. Cool cookies on cookie sheet for 10 minutes before removing to cooling rack. NOTE: If you decide to make the bigger cookies, you’ll need to bake them for 13-15 minutes.
  • While cookies are cooling, make the caramel frosting.


  • In stand mixer, cream butter and cream cheese for about 2-3 minutes until smooth.
  • Add in the vanilla, caramel sauce and powdered sugar and mix on high for about 3 minutes until smooth. If the frosting is too thick, add milk a teaspoon at a time to get the consistency you are looking for. If frosting is too thin, add more powdered sugar.
  • Put the frosting in a piping bag with a round tip OR you can put the frosting in a gallon size Ziploc bag and cut off one corner of the bag. Use the frosting bag to pipe frosting in a spiral on top of the cooled cookies. 


  • Combine graham cracker crumbs, melted butter, 1 TBSP apple cider mix and 1/4 cup chopped dried freeze apples. Mix well. Sprinkle streusel on top of each frosted cookie.
