Chocolate Chip Caramel Cookies
makes about 3 dozen
1 2/3 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature
3/4 packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
24 soft caramel candy cubes (7 oz)
1/4 cup heavy cream
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Sift together flour and salt.
- Put butter and both sugars in the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Mix on medium speed until pale and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Mix in egg and vanilla. Reduce speed to low; gradually mix in flour mixture. Add chocolate chips and mix to combine.
- Using a 1 1/2" cookie scoop, drop dough onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper or Silpats. Gently flatten tops of cookies. Bake until bottoms are golden, 6-8 minutes. Let cool on sheets.
- Melt caramels with cream in a saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring. Let cool. Using a spoon, drizzle caramel over cookies; let set.
