Caramel drizzled cookies

I’m so excited to share this recipe with you guys!!!

So this is by far the easiest cookies I’ve ever made. The best thing about them is how soft and buttery they are.

The ingredients you’ll need are:

For cookies:
2/3 cup butter (11 tablespoons)
½ sugar
2 egg yolks
½ teaspoon vanilla
½ teaspoon almond extract
1 1/2 cup flour

For caramel:
¼ cup butter
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons heavy cream

Directions:

Lets start with the cookies! Mix 2/3 cups butter, ½ cup sugar, 2 egg yolks, ½ teaspoon of vanilla and ½ teaspoon of almond extract on medium speed until light and fluffy.

Add the flour and beat on low speed until well combined.

Place cookie dough onto a baking sheet. To make the cookie dough balls I used a tablespoon measuring spoon. Then I lightly crush them so they don’t get to thick.

If you don’t have parchment paper at home use cooking spray. It works great.

Because of the butter the cookies spread a lot, so you will need to chill the dough before baking. Stick them in the freezer for 30 to 60 minutes.

For baking just preheat oven to 375 F degrees and bake cookies for 10 to 12 minutes.

Meanwhile….let’s make the caramel sauce!

Directions:

In a saucepan, melt ¼ butter and 1/3 brown sugar over medium heat. Whisk continuously, until it begins to bubble.

Continue cooking and whisking for a minute. Turn the heat to low. Slowly whisk in heavy cream until bubbly. The final result is smooth and thick-ish.

Let’s go to the fun part!

When you get the cookies out of the oven, place them in the fridge for about 5 minutes for cooling down.

Once cold, using a whisk, drizzle the cookies with caramel.

Then sprinkle a bit of salt on the cookies.

Let them cool down for a bit in the fridge and DONE!!!
