Don't let pumpkin steal the show this fall. Instead, try these delicious Caramel Apple Cookies for a unique treat that is full of seasonal flavors.

Recipe for frosted caramel apple cookies

We live only a few kilometers from a pretty apple orchard. Each fall, they host an open day on the apple harvest and we love to take our kids to the events.

Trolley rides, apple butter making and cider tasting are part of the fun. You can also pick up a variety of tasty apples while you're at it.

I love apples and I especially like using them in fall pastry recipes like these caramel apple cookies!

The texture of these cookies reminds me a bit of my ever popular pumpkin cookie recipe.

The cookie itself is sweet and a bit like a cake. It goes perfectly with the frosting and crunchy toasted pecans.

I used a Granny Smith apple, but Honeycrisp would also be good in these cookies.
