Caramel Apple Cookie Sandwiches

Caramel Apple Cookie SandwichesSoft and chewy apple spice oatmeal cookies sandwiched with brown sugar and cinnamon buttercream frosting and drizzled with salted caramel.  Think of the perfect caramel apple pie you can eat with your hands!

It’s cookie swap time people!  I’ve only been to one cookie swap party which was back home in the states.  I really wish I had participated in more because now that I’m living overseas in Dubai I haven’t heard of anybody doing that sort of thing.  I think they’re too beautiful and fit to be swapping dangerous and decadent cookies between one another.  I’ve done a cookie swap through the mail before, so I thought that would work until I remembered it costs about 75.00 to ship a box to the U.A.E.  Whoever gets stuck with me would probably sneeze all over my cookies.

Caramel Apple Cookie SandwichesI haven’t hit the peppermint craziness yet.  I’ve still got apples and pumpkins on the brain. That’s why these Caramel Apple Cookie Sandwiches are perfect for a cookie swap party.  There’s always someone in the group that’s a little too stubborn to let go of Fall.  So while the tables are full of chocolate peppermint meringue cookies and red and green sugar cookies, these cookie sandwiches will be sure to stick out.  Plus, salted caramel.  I would be grabbing anything with salted caramel drizzle.  I used my Apple Pie Cupcakes as inspiration for these cookie sandwiches.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Sandwiches with Sweet Tea Frosting


Super chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Sandwiches with Sweet Tea Frosting.  These totally kick Little Debbie in the butt!  

So, I almost had a mini heart attack yesterday.  I’m very new to this whole hosting on the internet thing and blogging.  It’s a scary frontier and I’m always learning something new about it everyday.  Well, I wanted to set up my Google Webmasters account and verify ownership – I’m sure all you bloggers know what I’m talking about.  It’s a cool way to see who links to my blog and see if anyone out in the world is talking about little ol’ me.  As I was going into my hosting account and adding the Google text I accidentally changed the DNS pointer.  Sounds harmless…


My webpage stopped working.  Anyone who is internet savvy or has been blogging for a while is probably thinking “No big deal.  It’s not broken.  Only put on hiatus for a little bit.”  Well, I thought I LOST everything.  Yes, I’ve only been blogging for a little over a month, but hey, this little yummy blog has become my baby!  So after talking to techs from my hosting company on the phone, they informed me (through crazy technical internet space language) that, “No…You did not lose your measly two months of blog content.  You just have to wait for the site to propagate.”  Whatever the heck that means…

So in conclusion:  Do not get cocky with the interwebs and think you can successfully change a little code and things be okay.

Lesson learned.
