Ingredients

  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 30 Caramel Apple Milky Ways

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line cookie sheets with silpat liner or parchment paper. Set aside.
  2. Unwrap candy and place into a bowl. Set bowl in the fridge while you prepare the dough.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer, or in a mixing bowl with a hand blender, combine butter and sugar. Beat together until combined and fluffy (about 2 minutes). Add egg and vanilla extract. Blend until combined.

  4. In separate bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir with a whisk to break up any clumps.
  5. Add flour mixture into butter mix, 1 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition. The dough will be thick  & crumbly but should hold together when formed into a ball. 

  6. Combine additional sugar and cinnamon in small bowl.
  7. Using a small cookie scoop, or about 2 tablespoons of dough, scoop dough and stuff a caramel apple milky way inside. Form a ball around the candy, making sure to completely cover it. Roll the ball in the cinnamon/sugar mix and place on cookie sheet.
  8. Bake for 11-14 minutes. I found 12 minutes to be the perfect time. Cookies will be puffy, won't spread much, and the edges will be a light golden brown.
  9. Let cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes before removing to a cooling rack to cool completely.
  10. These are best served warm but still yummy at room temperature. We have also warmed up leftovers in the microwave for a few seconds for a warm, melty treat.
