How to Make salted caramel cookies
1Because the dough needs to chill for at least 8 hours or overnight. I start the dough the day before.
2In a mixing bowl cream together the brown sugar, butter and vanilla. Beat in the eggs, baking powder and soda.
3Alternate adding the flour and buttermilk while mixing. Cover and let the dough chill.
4The next day, let the dough sit at room temperature while you make the frosting.
5In a saucepan combine the butter,brown sugar, salt and buttermilk. Cook until butter is melted and the sugar is dissolved, about 3 minutes.
6Remove from heat. Pour into a mixing bowl along with the vanilla and powdered sugar. Beat until smooth and set aside.
7Preheat oven to 350. Drop cookie dough onto a parchment lined baking sheet that has been lightly greased.
8Bake for 10-12 minutes. These are a cake like cookie, so make sure the cookie is cooked in the center.
9Let cool on wire rack. Once the cookie is cooled, you will then spread the cooked frosting. It should still be warm, over each cookie.
10I then sprinkled a pinch of course sea salt on top. Then drizzle each with melted white chocolate. Store in a airtight container.
