Oh Pinterest how I love your recipes!

I found these cookies last night at Little Bitty Bakes and since I LOVE salt caramels I can't wait to make them!

Makes 2 ½ dozen cookies
Cook Time: 20 minutes
Prep Time:
30 minutes
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, softened
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 package (3.4 oz) butterscotch instant pudding mix
  • 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • 30 soft caramel candies, unwrapped
  • 2 tablespoons sea salt
Heat the oven to 375°F. Line two large cookie sheets with parchment paper.

In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar until creamy. Add the egg, vanilla and milk; beat until mixed.

In a medium bowl, combine the baking soda, baking powder, pudding mix, and flour. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until combined.

Shape the cookie dough into one-inch balls. For each cookie, flatten one cookie dough ball in the palm of your hand; place a caramel candy in the center and wrap the cookie dough around the candy. Place cookies onto prepared cookie sheets about 2 inches apart; sprinkle with sea salt.

Bake 10 minutes or until the cookie edges are light golden brown. Sprinkle with additional sea salt immediately, if desired. Allow the cookies to cool 5 minutes before transferring to cooling racks to cool completely.

I also found this recipe at Plain Chicken. I think I am going to make my own savory version tonight to go with dinner. I am thinking a garlic cream cheese spread, cheese, bacon. I want to try the cinnamon roll version but since I am making cookies for dinner tonight I will have to wait for another occasion.
