Salted Caramel Cookies
This is how I make salted caramel cookies. I know I technically didn't make any caramel, sorry if that's what you were expecting. I do it this way because I'm lazy, this is fast and it works, and most of all, I do it this way because the idea of burning myself with caramel (I'm such a klutz so this is super likely to happen) scares the heck out of me.
So I guess you could call this a cheats recipe? Either way, try this out, it's so yummy. Such a good balance between sweet and salty. If you wanna be "good" try leaving out the spread (peanut butter/cookie butter/Biscoff/Nutella) and the chocolate bar (Twix). Even if you don't put anything in the cookie and just bake it as it is it's really good.
110 grams butter
350 grams light brown sugar
55 grams unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 teaspoon sea salt, and some for garnishing
3/4 teaspoon baking powder
250 grams all purpose flour
100 grams chocolate chips (optional)
Spread (I used Biscoff, use what you have on hand)
Caramel filled chocolate bars (I used Twix)
1. Line a baking tray with parchment paper and preheat your oven to 180C.
2. Brown your butter, set aside to cool.
3. Mix your brown sugar, eggs to the cooled butter. Add cocoa powder, sea salt, and baking powder. When fully incorporated add flour. Optional, add chocolate chips.
4. Scoop dough on to your tray, make a dent, scoop in your spread and top with a chocolate caramel bar. Then cover the whole thing up with more dough and top with sea salt.
5. Bake for 8-10 minutes.
