Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies


Holiday Season is all about baked goods (and well, large quantities of glogg - Danish mulled wine). I have a weakness for salted caramel, so when i saw these cookies on Pinterest, i couldn't resist. The recipe comes from here, yet i adjusted it a little since the recommended baking time and the oven temperature did not quite work for my cookies. So here you go:

  • 1 cup of all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda (NOT baking powder :)
  • 70 g salted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 6-7 wrapped caramels, cut into 4 or 5 pieces each (i used ukrainian candy Korivka)
  • sea salt
Preheat oven to 190 C.
Mix the flour and baking soda in a bowl and set aside.
With an electric mixer or stand mixer with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugar together. Add the egg and vanilla and mix well. Gradually add the flour mixture and stir until a dough forms (may take a couple minutes of stirring). Fold in the chocolate chips (do not add the caramels yet). 
Chill dough for at least 30 minutes (or up to 5 days) in the refrigerator. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased baking sheet. Press a few pieces of caramel onto the tops of the cookies. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. The centers should appear very soft and puffy. Sprinkle each cookie with sea salt while they are warm. Let cool completely and enjoy!
