coloring the dough

Caramel Apples (Tutorial)

I've always wanted to do some form of caramel apples in a last week was my chance. And along with the fun shape, I decided to do three different flavors of cookies/shapes. It was a much bigger undertaking than I imagined. I'll save the multi-flavorings information for another time soon, but for now.....I want to show you how I made the caramel apples.

Trying to save time, I decided to color my dough red. That way, I wouldn't have to decorate the bottom part of the no worries about red bleeding. :)

I chose to flavor my caramel apples with caramel flavoring from Spices Etc. Yum! I put the flavoring in both the dough and the icing.

 To decorated, use a medium brown close to caramel color as you can get. I think it helped to add gold Americolor to the brown icing. Outline the top of the cookie with a drippy caramel look....and then fill it in. If you'd like to add nuts over the top of the caramel, now is the time to do it.

 Let the cookies dry a bit, before adding the sticks. The sticks are a little tricky.....especially when you have really thick cookies like mine. I put a line of icing down the bottom of the stick and set my apple cookie on top. The larger ones wanted to flop over on one side of the stick, so I used folded paper towels to prop them up while they dried. The smaller apples didn't give me this problem. Please excuse this dark was evening by then. ;)

And there you have it....caramel apples on a stick. Yum!

Lots more harvest/autumn cookies to come. So much to show little time.
