If You Don't Have Time To Make Cookies...You Might Have Time To Make These!

These cookies only call for 3 ingredients!

Sugar cookies
1 1/4 cup caramels
1 Tbs. water

Put a small amount of cookie dough into mini muffin tins.
Bake cookie.  Do not over bake- cookies in the tube tend to get over done quickly.  I used the bottom of a wooden spoon to hollow
out the center of the cookie after you take them out of the oven.

Melt caramels and water in microwave.
Pour caramels into center of cookie.
Cover with plastic wrap until caramels have set.

I sprinkled sea salt on them too.
These are so easy and so good...and so addicting.
Definitely my favorite cookie I made this Christmas!

(If the cookie gets hard after a few days, pop them into the micowave for a few seconds...
the caramel gets all melty...and....I think I need to go have!

Oh how I love caramel...and sugar and cookies. 
I have thrown in the towel.
I will start my diet on Jan.2nd like all the other
sugar craving people out there!


PS.  If you make these, I'd love to know what you think of them!

Oh my... we might have to have a dueling cookies recipe blog thing. Kind of like the piano bar. These look really good. Darn. I think I may have to add them to my Christmas repertoire. OK who am I kidding, I'll get one of the girls on to this pronto.

Those sound so delish! I love caramel more and more as I get older... weird. Thanks for the idea. Jan. 2 is coming soon isn't it?

Jill said...

These look absolutely delicious!! I love caramel, when I get some ink for my computer I'm coming back to print these! :-) Yummy. I hope you have a wonderful New Year and a very Merry Christmas! I'll be laying low until after Disney, but will be back with lots to share!!

We're planning to make peanut butter blossoms tomorrow using a similar method. But I have a bunch of leftover caramels from Halloween. May have to give these a try too. Love the addition of sea salt.

Donna said...

Yummo! They look great and I love the idea of sprinkling sea salt on something sweet! I need one more thing so this will be perfect...thanks Kerri!

Genn said...

hi Kerri, I have been catching up with you this morning. Those cookies/caramels look tasty!

Looks like you have been making all kinds of cute fun gifts. The lumps of coal are my favorite. Those are cute! I'm off to check out the recipe.

Hope you and yours have a very Merry Christmas together!!!
