These Mulled Apple Cider Cookies are the perfect Autumn treats, combining apple cider, cinnamon and allspice in a sweet little cookie.
This recipe takes a bit longer than some cookie recipes because you start by cooking the apple cider with warm spices until it is nice and thick. Instead of vanilla extract or other flavorings, the apple cider syrup is the flavor base for the cookie and the icing.
The result is an amazing burst of apples and spices in every bite!
