Salted Caramel Chip Cookies

I was craving cookies over the rainy weekend and wanted to jazz up my standard chocolate chip cookie recipe. I found some Nestle caramel chips in the supermarket and thought a salted caramel cookie would be a winner!
I reduced the sugar in these cookies as the caramel chips are very sweet. You can add more salt (or even less) to taste, but I love the contrast of the sweet caramelised bits and the occasional crunch of salt. Delicious!

Serves: 20
Ingredients
  • 140g butter (room temperature)
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg (room temperature)
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups plain flour
  • 1 tsp sea salt + extra to sprinkle on top
  • ½ tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 250g Nestle caramel chips
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 170°C. Cream the butter and sugar for at least 5 minutes until the mixture becomes light and fluffy.
  2. Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat well.
  3. Add caramel chips, flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Beat on low speed until just combined (don’t overwork the mixture or it can become tough).
  4. Dollop tablespoon sized balls of cookie dough onto lined baking trays. Sprinkle each cookie with a bit more sea salt.
  5. Bake until cookies are golden around the edges, around 12-14 minutes.

Please try very hard not to eat all the cookie dough, I often end up getting only 19 cookies from this batch into the oven due to the irresistible powers of raw cookie dough :p

      Oh damn! I got mine from the Coles in Surry Hills, I think I have seen them in the big CBD supermarkets too. Good luck!

    Oh my goodness! these look perfect, do you have a secret for getting them so perfectly round? or is it just the old ice cream scoop trick?

    • Swah says

      Yep the old ice cream scoop trick! And then I gently rolled them into balls and flattened them slightly before baking :)

      They were incredibly delicious! And once baked, the caramel chips get slightly caramelised and crunchy on the bottom, heaven!

      Cookie dough is so dangerous! I measured each cookie with an ice cream scoop, then rolled them into balls and gently flattened them so they are all even :)
