Caramel Cookies


I specifically sought out cookie recipes I hadn't made before to share with you this holiday season. Honestly though, with the amount of cookies and other baked good recipes I found, I really should have started making them in...July to have posted anywhere near as many as I want to make.

So New Years' resolutions be damned, I'm pretty sure I'll be posted calorie-laden sugar-filled goodies right on through January. You don't mind, right?

Which makes it only a little bit ironic that this cookie recipe comes from the Weight Watchers site. Hey, even people dieting need a cookie every once in a while, right?

    • 1 cup all-purpose flour
    • 3/4 cup whole wheat flour
    • 1/2 tsp. baking soda
    • 1/4 tsp. salt 
    • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
    • 1 stick unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 egg
    • 1 tsp. vanilla
1. Combine flours, baking soda and salt together in a medium bowl.
2. Beat the brown sugar, butter, egg and vanilla together in the bowl of your stand mixer until smooth.
3. Slowly add in the flour mixture until combined.
4. Turn out the dough onto a piece of wax paper, parchment paper or plastic wrap. Form the dough into a log, wrap up, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, but up to overnight.
5. Preheat the oven to 400.
6. Cut dough into thin slices and place 1 inch apart on non-greased baking sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden.
7. Let cool for 1 minute on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to continue cooling.

These cookies looked too plain to me so I decided to jazz them up a little bit with the help of some sprinkles. I don't know if I'll get a chance to make regular sugar cookies this time, so I decided to use these instead.

There isn't a very strong caramel flavor, but for a simple, soft cookie, this does the trick. Also, if you're a weight watchers person, each cookie is 1 point from the PointsPlus system.
