Salted Caramel Cookies
For an easy option that still packs a punch, cookies are a perfect place to start for novice bakers. Filled cookies are the ultimate afternoon treat and an easy way to wow without slaving away for hours.
- 350g plain flour
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 250g brown sugar
- 50g caster sugar
- 170g unsalted butter
- 3 eggs
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 320g chocolate chips
- 1 tsp sea salt
- Caramel sauce
Preheat the oven to 180ºC (gas mark 4).
Beat the flour, sea salt and bicarbonate of soda together and set aside.
Separately, melt the butter and mix with the brown sugar and caster sugar until fully combined. Add the eggs, one at a time, beat, then add the vanilla extract.
Combine with the dry ingredients and fold the chocolate chips into the mixture and beat to a cookie dough consistency. Divide the mixture into small balls (around 2 tbsp-size balls) and press your thumb into the middle to create a small well. Here, you can pour in the caramel sauce, or press in a fudge or caramel sweet of choice.
Close the dough over the filling and roll gently into a ball in your palms. Place the balls onto a greaseproof lined baking tray and bake for 12-15 minutes. During this time the balls will spread and flatten into a cookie shape. Once baked, transfer onto a cooling rack, then enjoy!
