Salted Caramel Snickerdoodles

Being in the restaurant business, Monday isn’t a dreadful day and Friday isn’t  joyous day, something goes on EVERY day so sometimes I don’t even know what day I am on. I am not complaining but sometimes I giggle to myself when I have no idea what day it is, then I feel lost and confused so I yell out to someone “what day is it?” and I get an answer and a laugh.

Another thing that is constant for me is cookies, I never ever, I mean never ever ever get sick of them. How could you? And with such variety, how could you? Naturally I needed a new type of cookie so I decided to play with two cookie recipes I have previously posted, Salted Caramel Chocolate Chip Cookies and Brown Butter Snickerdoodles.

These cookies were SOOO chewy and sooo tasty! I couldn’t stop eating them, literally I took them to work to share with my co workers then got scared I wouldn’t have enough so I stole some back. Pathetic? Yes, thats me..

Make these, enjoy these, and hide them from your co workers!
