Salted Caramel Soft Cookies

These cookies are brought to you by a late night cookie craving and a dying need to use caramel bits!!

Don’t you just love how caramel and salt go so perfect together. Sweet and salty is always a good taste combination but caramel and salt take it to a whole new level. Love it!

2 cups of flour
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 cup of butter, softened
1 cup of brown sugar
2 large eggs, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups of caramel bits

about 1 tbs of coarse salt for sprinkling


1. Beat the butter and sugar on medium- high speed  for about 3 minutes.

2. Add the eggs, one at a time.

3. Beat in the vanilla.

4. Lower the speed on the mixer to low. Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt together and add to the batter. Mix until all combined.

5. Using a rubber spatula, fold in the caramel bits.

6. Cover and refrigerate for an hour.

~ Preheat the oven to 350. Line the cookie sheets with parchment paper.

7. Scoop out the dough with a table spoon (or a scoop) and place on the baking sheet. Sprinkle each dough ball with some coarse salt.

8. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
