1 package of Apple Cider instant drink mix (do not prepare)

- Heat oven to 375 degrees F. In a small bowl, mix sugar, 1 teaspoon of the apple cider drink mix and ½ teaspoon of cinnamon and set aside
- In a large bowl, stir cookie mix, softened butter, egg and remaining apple cider drink mix and cinnamon with a spoon until a soft dough forms. Stir in apple slices until combined. Shape dough into 40 (1 ¼ inch) balls. Roll balls in a sugar-spice mixture. Place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet.
