How to Make salted caramel cookies

Step-by-Step

  • 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.
