I have this thing for cookies. And I also have this thing for salted caramel. I’ve added the two together in the past here and here. But I something wasn’t right. The caramel didn’t really work stuffed into a cookie as it was too runny or if you used caramels and sea salt the caramels could go a bit hard.
Then I had this brain wave. Cream the butters and sugar together WITH salted caramel! I am not going to lie, I was SO freaking happy with the results. Seriously perfection baby!!!
You know what is also perfection? Me spending time with my family in England and off tomorrow to Barcelona. Woo HOO! life is good I am blessed and so happy that I have the family I do!!
I hope you give these Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies a go and share them with your loved ones. Hope your all having a fabulous August 🙂
In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking soda, salt and cornstarch.
