Carmel Apple Cider Cookies



3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 (7.4 oz) box Alpine Spiced Apple Cider Instant Original Drink Mix (10 packets – found next to hot chocolate mix)I just found 60pkt at Costco for a great price.
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 (11 ounce) bag of Kraft Carmel Bits (this is a tweak) original calls for actual carmal square. These Bits are easier and yummy. Pictured



*Preheat oven to 350°. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper (you need this so that the caramel doesn’t stick to the bottom of your cookie 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.
*Add the Carmel bites mix gently just until blended
*Scoop out cookie dough ball about the size of a walnut (about 2 tablespoons).
*Shape the dough into a ball, and place on parchment covered cookie sheets about 3 inches apart.
*Bake 11-14 minutes, or until very lightly browned around the edges. They may not look quite done in the center but that is OK.
*Once the cookies are done, carefully slide the parchment off of the baking sheet right out onto the counter.
*Allow cookies to partially cool on the parchment. When cookies are cool enough to be firm but still slightly warm, allow to finish cooling on the parchment or on a cookie rack.
*Makes around 5- dozen cookies. Eat at room temperature or slightly warmed in the microwave.
