Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
A sweet, soft cookie with a delightful caramel crunch! Who could ask for more?!

Ingredients

1 c
crushed werther's caramel hard candies
2 c
all purpose flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp
salt
1/2 c
crisco shortening
1 stick
(1/2 c) unsalted butter, softenend
1/2 c
sugar
1/2 c
light brown sugar packed
1
egg
1 tsp
vanilla
1 1/2-2 Tbsp
instant coffee granules
4 tsp
water
CHOCOLATE DRIZZLE
2 c
(1 pkg) semi sweet chocolate chips
2 Tbsp
shortening or butter

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 375F. In a bowl, add all your dry ingredients and sift or mix well.
2
In your mixer bowl or bowl using hand mixer, beat your sugars and butter and shortening till light and fluffy. Turn off mixer. In a mini bowl, disolve the instant coffee with the water. Add to the cream mixture, add your vanilla, finally your egg.
3
Slowly add your dry ingredients, till soft dough forms. Turn off mixer. Add your crushed pounded caramels and stir into batter till thoroughy incorporated. **See Cooks Notes

Using a small wet cookie scoop (wet - meaning that you dip the scooper in water every 2-3 scoops to ensure easier handling), scoop out dough and bake for 7-8 minutes. Remove from oven, and let the cookies rest on the cookie sheet for a few minutes till able to easily remove without breaking unto the cooling racks.
4
When all the cookies are on the cooling racks. Place chcolate chips and butter or shortening in a microwave safe bowl. Nuke in 10-15 second increments till very glossy and liquid. Add chocolate mixture into a squeeze bottle and drizzle over cookies. Or, you can use the back of a spoon if desired.

Cooks notes: Please use 2 gallon size bags to crush the Werther's caramels using a meat grinder or rolling pin. If you place the candies in a food processor, they will grind up nice and fine, however, it will change the conistency of the cookie. Place candies in one bag, place another bag over, and then take out your frustrations....

Enjoy!

Yes Jessica that is why I highly recommend using a rolling pin or some other object and crushing them that way instead of the food processor.

I was wondering about that--mine weren't that crunchy, and I was thinking I'd try a coarser mix of the candies--not crush them quite so fine.

Mine were on the crunchy side Debbie. I hope that helps.

Question: once you bake the cookies, is the candy hard to crunch or does it soften it and just add the flavor?
