Caramel Apple Cookies (Michigan)

Inspired by my current home state of Michigan, I decided to make caramel apple cookies. With shredded apple and additional apple cider, these cookies turned out with the perfect apple flavor and then an apple cider caramel glaze/frosting to drizzle over top.

    These just didn’t really come together for me. The flavor profile is nice, but between the moisture from the shredded apple and the apple cider, the texture is way off…gooey and unappealing.
