※ Salted Caramel and Chocolate Chip Cookies

 

I use the Martha Stewart Basic recipe and slightly tweak it. 
I use salted butter not unsalted.


INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 teaspoons coarse salt (I used Fleur De Sel)
  • 1 1/4 cups salted butter, room temperature
  • 1 1/2 cups packed light-brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large free range eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup milk chocolate chips
  • 1 cup caramel chips (I use Nestle Caramel Bits)

METHOD:

Step 1
In a bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder.

Step 2
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars on medium-high until light and fluffy, 6 minutes. Reduce speed to medium-low and beat in eggs, one at a time. Beat in vanilla. Mix in flour mixture just until incorporated; fold in chocolate chips and chunks.
I then hand shape small balls then flatted them out. I press a few more chips onto the tops and then sprinkle with the salt.


Step 3

Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius, with racks in upper and lower thirds. Arrange 6 unbaked cookies, 3 inches apart, on each of two parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake until edges are light golden brown, approx 15 minutes rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer cookies to a wire rack and let cool.



The ingredient that makes these sooooo good is Singing Dog Vanilla from TBD imports
