Sweet, Salty, See ya!

These cookies are so good that I don’t even have a photo of the finished product to show. I forgot to take one when I took the cookies out of the oven and figured I’d have some left over after bringing the cookies to our afternoon lecture and they all got eaten. So no photos for you but I can definitely vouch that this recipe is simple and freaking delicious!

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 cups salted butter or margarine
  • 1 cups light brown sugar
  • 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 3/4 cups chocolate chips
  • 1/2 a bag of wrapped caramels (Kraft is usually the cheapest– found in the candy aisle)
  • Sea salt

Here’s what to do:

  • Melt the butter and mix all the wet ingredients in a big bowl
  • Add the sugars and then slowly add in the flour/baking soda
  • Add in the chocolate chips and mix well (but not too much! whatever the hell that means…)
  • Let the dough sit in the fridge for awhile (30 mins-a few days, depending on your time frame)
  • When you’re ready to make the cookies, pre-heat the oven to 325
  • Cut up the caramels into quarters
  • Spoon tablespoon sized globs of cookie dough, ball them, and place onto an ungreased cookie sheet
  • Smoosh some caramel pieces onto the top, flattening the balls slightly (see photos below)
  • Cook for 8-12 minutes until the edges are golden brown
  • Sprinkle the cookies with the sea salt immediately when you remove them, let cool
  • Enjoy your new-found friends that you’ll make with this recipe!!

 

I'm pretty sure "smoosh" is the technical term for this method of getting caramel onto cookie dough.
