Cookies, Cookies, Cookies!

I’m currently galavanting around Las Vegas, but I wanted to pop in here to share the COOKIES that I made (and received) from the 2012 Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap! I participated last year and thought it was great, so when they emailed all of us saying there would be a charity aspect to this year’s swap, I definitely couldn’t pass it up.

I gave away one of the OXO Cookie Spatula’s that I received from OXO last week, but I wasn’t able to post the recipe I used until TODAY! Here we go:

Chocolate Chip Cookies with Salted Caramel
recipe slightly adapted from CulinaryChat.net 

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups all-purpose four
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda (NOT powder – I can’t tell you how many times I’ve mixed them up)
  • 1 cup salted butter, slightly softened
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar (I used light)
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk only
  • 2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 cup chocolate chips (I used semi-sweet, but I imagine dark would be delish)
  • 16 wrapped caramels, cut into very small pieces
  • Sea salt
 

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 325 degrees
  • In one bowl, mix flour and baking soda
  • In a separate bowl, mix butter and sugars together
  • Once creamed, add in the eggs and vanilla
  • In batches, add flour to butter/sugar/egg/vanilla mixture until combined
  • Add chocolate chips
  • Chill dough for at least 30 minutes in fridge
  • Once chilled, spoon dough onto non-stick pan
  • Add caramel pieces and press them into the cookie
  • Bake for 8 minutes, until lightly golden brown
  • While still hot, sprinkle with sea salt
They. were. so. good.
I shipped these cookies to Jane at A Taste of Koko, Jenny at Jenny Rambles and Jenn at My Kitchen Kreations To You.
I received cookies from Dani at Ice Ceam Meets Bowl, Ashley at Savvy Table and Melissa at The Foodie Teacher! Thank you all for the absolutely delicious treats!

  1. Received these at 8:30 pm one night (who delivers the mail that late!?) and what a treat!! I love salted anything so these were perfect. Added bonus: by that time my kids were in bed so I had them all to myself! Thank you so much.

    • You are so sweet! (Your poor mailman! haha) I’m SO sorry for the terrible wrapping – as you can tell, life has been a little hectic and all of my cute Christmas paper and decor was packed. I was lucky I found a post-it note!! :) Thank you for the sweet note!

Don't be shy!
