A friend of mine made these this weekend and they were divine! Had to share! Caramel Apple Bites For the Filling: 1/3 cup chopped unpeeled apple 1/3 cup evaporated milk 1/3 cup sugar 1/3 cup chopped walnuts For the Dough: 1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar 1/4 cup packed brown sugar 1 egg 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 teaspoon salt 2 cups all-purpose flour For the Topping: 1 package (14 ounces) caramels 2/3 cup evaporated milk Green toothpicks 1 cup chopped walnuts RECIPE In a small saucepan, combine filling ingredients. Cook and stir over medium heat until thickened; set aside to cool. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugars. Add egg, vanilla and salt; beat well. Add flour; mix well. Shape dough into 1-in. balls. Flatten and place 1/4 teaspoon filling in center of each. Fold dough over filling and reshape into balls. Place 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool. In a saucepan over low heat, cook caramels and evaporated milk, stirring occasionally, until caramels are melted. Insert a toothpick into each cookie and dip into caramel until completely coated. Dip bottoms into nuts. Place on wire racks to set.
