Salted Caramel Cookies

Hi friends!  Are you guys gearing up for the holiday baking season?

I am in full swing for sure.

 

I try and pin down the recipes that I will make for my holiday baking way ahead of time…too many times have I decided to try new recipes for my big baking day, only to end up covered in flour and cookie tears.  It kind of takes the fun of the day.

I wish I could say that I am a lemonades from lemons kind of a girl, but it’s the holiday season and I really shouldn’t lie.

 

Annnyway…baking holiday cookies has always been a huge tradition in my family, especially the decorated sugar cookies.

But, I have been blessed with a house full of boys who don’t seem to value the art of the cookie decorating as much as they do the cookie eating, so I have switched up my cookie menu a little bit to cater to their lack of desire as well as my lack of patience.  Baking quick cookies that come together without a bagillion ingredients or steps is the best way for all of us to enjoy the day…that’s what it’s all about, right?

 

Which leads me to these cookies.  Salted Caramel Cookies… actually they are Salted Pretzel Caramel Cookies, and they are fantastic! I got the recipe for these over at the Eagle Brand site..there are some really fun recipes over there!

You have a chewy sugar cookie, loaded with salty pretzel bits and topped with the most delicious caramel sauce, made using Eagle Brand Condensed Milk.IMG_4786What I love even more about this recipe is that you microwave the sweetened condensed milk to make the caramel…just be sure to use a deep bowl, otherwise it will bubble over.  Trust me on this. *ahem.

After you cook your sweetened condensed milk in the microwave you will have a golden caramel that you can spread right on top of your cookies!

I added a nice sprinkle of flaked sea salt on top to give it some extra saltiness.

Hi! I’m Shelly and I’m an addict. Of the buttercream sort. I started this site a few years ago as a way to justify my sugary, buttery obsession with desserts. It has worked out well for me so far, because as it turns out you guys all love sugary, buttery desserts too! It feels good to know you're not alone, doesn’t it?

These were delish but I’m not sure if the Carmel is supposed to be real sticky and I wasn’t sure how to store. I put them in between layers of wax paper and they stuck.

I attempted making these last night and like others had horrible results. 1c of butter is way too much. The first batch I baked off just melted into a pool of goo. I added about a cup and half of flour to the second batch and while slightly better they still pooled out. If i try I again I am going to use 1/4 of the butter suggested and cross my fingers.

Love the cookies, but the caramel out of the condensed milk did not work for me. It just congealed instead of melting? Any tips for that part would be great!

I made these yesterday for my girlfriend cookie bake and they did not turn out. They were flat and nothing like the photo. While they did have a good taste they did not present very well. I followed the recipe exactly so I am not sure what happened. Should I have added flour to the mix? I got the worst cookie award first time ever this year.

I have made these twice where they did not turn out. 2 sticks of butter was way too much and they turned out flat and crumbly (which is fortunately how my husband likes them so at least they were eaten). My store only carries the Betty Crocker brand of sugar cookie mix so this may be a factor. Finally the 3rd time I decided to only use 1 stick of butter (as that is what the directions of the cookie package called for) and added 1/4 cup sour cream to add some extra moisture for the added pretzels. I also… Read more »

My favorite memories about Christmas baking are with my daughter. Ever since she was a baby we have made cookies for “Santa” and she has helped through the whole process. Well, she is 17 now and I still love to bake Santa’s cookies with her.
