Applesauce Cookies with Caramel Frosting
Ohhh these were so, so yummy. I seriously lost count of how many I ate within a few hours of making them. I took these to my friends lake house, and everyone gobbled them up even when we were stuffed from dinner. The cookies themselves are super soft and fluffy and seem just like muffin tops. They taste like a spice cake with a touch of apple....very comforting and delicious. Then you get the wonderful, rich, decadent, smooth, dreamy, melt-in-your-mouth, caramel frosting. The frosting definitely takes these cookies to the next level. It's like you're biting into a heavenly cloud of perfect deliciousness. I first spotted these cookies a few weeks ago on Pinterest, and had been dying to make them but we never had heavy cream in the house. So when we finally did have heavy cream, I knew their time had come.
