Caramel Apple Cookies Recipe @pinch

Caramel apples and fall go together like peas and carrots. The hint of spices makes these caramel apple cookies perfect for fall. They are soft, sticky, and gooey. There's a slight crunch from the walnuts and a subtle burst of sweetness from the bits of chopped apples. I was bored today and started playing around in the kitchen. This is what I came up with. I feel that some of the best recipes happen when you are hungry. A well havestocked kitchen is a great place to play on a cool fall day.
