  • Pour about 3/4 cup of sugar into your saucepan before you turn the stove on. Shake it around to make sure it's evenly distributed over the pan. You may need more or less depending on the size of your saucepan. Turn on the stovetop to medium heat, and just wait. Don't stir or touch it.

  • wait about 5 minutes or so. Be ready with a stirring spoon that can withstand high temperatures. Keep a close eye on it now as it starts to melt along the edge. Keep picking up the pan and shifting it, to prevent the sugar from burning.As it starts to melt more, turn the heat down just a little bit

  • Once most of the sugar is melted, then take your spoon and stir it up a bit.JUST after the caramel starts to smoke, remove it from the heat, and immediately add a generous spoonful of butter! This will stop it from cooking. Stir it up completely!

  • Add a teaspoon or two of vanilla extract and a few dashes of apple pie spice (or just cinnamon and nutmeg if you have those). Stir it again. Spoon out as many drops of caramel as you can onto your cookie sheet while it's hot! Let them cool in the fridge.
