These cookies are in honor of a super sweet girl. My friend, Amber. She is welcoming her first little one into the world in a few weeks, so some of her closest blog friends organized a party! Since we can’t all be together on her special day, we decided to make food, in her honor!

Amber and I have a few remarkable things in common…most notably being displaced Texans. We both grew up in the Lone Star State and for one reason or another are now both living in New Jersey. I have to say, it’s nice to be able to commiserate the lack of good Tex-Mex with someone who truly gets it!

Over the past year Amber and I have transitioned from online friends to real-life friends, which is kinda great. Plus, she makes some killer salsa, and you always need a friend who can show up with salsa.  Friendship 101, people.

Another thing that we have in common is England. How you ask? Well, her husband is famously from the UK…and so is my dad.  Which makes me half British.  So there’s that.

So I decided that for her special day, while the rest of the girls were celebrating Amber’s Texas roots, I’d involve her husband, because this little baby that’s on it’s way is gonna be half a Brit! What I’m saying is, we’ll basically be related.

Makes total sense.

Sticky Toffee Pudding Cookies With Caramel Sauce:

On that note, let’s talk Sticky Toffee Pudding Cookies.

Sticky Toffee Pudding Cookies | www.cookiesandcups.comSticky Toffee Pudding is a famous British dessert…happens to be one of my dad’s favorites too! So I thought we would try and mix up all the flavors of that into a cookie.

Well, it totally worked.

Tips and Tricks on These Toffee Pudding Cookies:

First up you have to get some pitted dates. I’m going to admit, I am scared of dates. They look gross, for real.Like cockroaches or something.

Anyhow, I moved past my fear and chopped them into bits.  Because they are basically a defining ingredient in Sticky Toffee Pudding.  Who knew?

Anyhow, I whipped up a simple cookie dough using dark brown sugar (it’s a must here) and mixed in the dates…

I let the dough chill overnight, although you could probably get away with a few hours. I just wanted a big fat cookie, so chilling helps with that.

I scooped generous portions onto a lined baking sheet…

And baked them up for about 10 minutes…

Then I drizzled them to death with caramel sauce. And then dressed them with toffee bits.

I think dates are creepy too! You hit the nail on the culinary head! What an amazing idea: turning sticky toffee pudding into a cookie! These look that the best kind of messy! Can’t wait to whip up a batch!

I actually love dates but I’ve never had sticky toffee pudding. I must try these cookies very soon! So happy for Amber, she sure is a sweet one!

This is why I love showers, not just the great food (wow) but because you learn things about people. My dad is British also, so, like you, I’m also half-Brit. It must be a sign? 😉

You had me at dates…..<3

Wow, I had no idea I was famously British, and now I feel infamously British! This is so amazing, thank you so much Shelly!

Kate | Food Babbles

Oh my goodness, it’s terrible that the thing jumping out at me in this post is that you think dates look like cockroaches cause I am SO with you on this one!! I think they look so gross and that has kept me from eating them right up until about 6 months ago when I blended one into a smoothie. They still remind me of cockroaches but if I can obliterate them into something else, I’m good. These cookies seem like a mighty fine place to start liking dates even more. They sound (and look) so good! I love that… Read more »
