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?

  1. These look beyond awesome! I love the whole sweet and salty thing so, so very much. And that caramel sauce! I got my baking love from my grandmother and great aunt, who taught me early on that you must always have at least one can of sweetened condensed milk on hand for yummy things just like this!

    Mmmmm! Salted caramel on a sugar cookie?! Perfection! These will be a perfect & simple addition to my Christmas Party’s “Cookies & Milk for Santa Buffet”. Thank you!

  3. OMG I almost used those slate namecards in my last recipe!! I LOVE them and I was so excited when I got mine in the mail!
    My favorite holiday baking memory is always my grandma making the pumpkin pies. She makes them from scratch and they always turn out perfectly! She makes them deep-dish with tons of pumpkin filling, so if I’d followed the recipe myself, they would never turn out the same. Perfect.

    My grandfather always made a ton of Christmas cookies and there were a few different kinds as well. My favorite holiday baking memory would be when I decided to make my grandfather’s cookies one year and bring him some for a change.

    I make new memories every year, but back in 2010 everything was just wonderful. My whole family, my dad helping to bake which is RARE, and Nana being the leader. I love it!

    Eaglebrand ALWAYS has wonderful recipes and new ideas…and to think my neighbor stocks her pantry with green beans. Not my household…we stock Eaglebrand condensed milk and Jello pudding. You know the real necessities of life!!!!!

    I always baked with my mother. We baked for weeks and weeks during the holidays for our house and the church.
    I now do the same with my children and have for the past 19 years.
