Told you all- I.Am.Back. I have quite a few savory recipes to post up my sleeve but it was Oscar Weekend (yes, week end - one word, capital "W".) Back in the day, I use to either 1) attend glamorous NYC parties or 2) throw one! Now, I am content to watch the Oscars in a homey way- in pjs, glittered socks & a homemade delectable, DeLish snack... And this was IT...
Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies
adapted from Sally's Baking Addiction
- 2 c + 2 TBSp a-p flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 3/4 c (1.5 sticks) salted butter, room temperature
- 1 c light brown sugar
- 1/2 c sugar
- 2 eggs, at room temperature
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 LARGE Caramello Candy Bar, chopped into uneven bits & pieces
- sea salt
Mix the flour & baking soda in a small bowl; set aside.
Cream the butter & sugars together. Add the eggs & vanilla; combine well. Gradually add the flour mixture & stir until a lumpy dough forms. Do not overmix the dough at any point in this process.
Form a "log" shape & wrap the dough tightly in plastic wrap & chill it in the freezer. When the dough is chilled well...
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F.
Unwrap the dough & slice into coin shapes (rapidly so as to keep the dough cold). Place the coin shapes onto an ungreased baking sheet. Press a few pieces of teh caramello bits into the tops of the cookies. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. Sprinkle each cookie with sea salt while they are warm.
PERFECT with a glass of ice cold milk.
