Just a touch of crunch on the edge with a soft and chewy center.  These salted caramel cookies have a touch of caramel in the batter, caramel chips and salted caramel drizzle for ultimate sweet snacking.



  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.  Starting on slow and increasing speed to medium-high, beat butter until soft and pale, about 3 minutes.
  2. Add granulated sugar and brown sugar, mix on medium-high speed for 1 minute.  Add egg, vanilla, and salt.  Mix to combine, scraping the bottom of the bowl.
  3. Add baking powder, baking soda and flour.  Start on low speed until incorporated, add 2 tablespoons of salted caramel¹ and increase speed to medium to combine.  Slowly add caramel chips and mix until combined.
  4. Using a large cookie scoop, roll each scoop into a ball and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silpat mat.  If you don’t have a cookie scoop, use about 2 tablespoons of dough per cookie.  Sprinkle lightly with coarse sea salt.
  5. Bake for 13-15 minutes, let cool 15 minutes, then drizzle with remaining salted caramel.
