Well it is definitely winter now in Sydney, though I really can’t complain as we’re going to be blowing this popsicle stand soon for a more tropical location. In the meantime though, I needed a way to entertain the little bears one afternoon and baking was the way to go. We made these Salted Caramel Cookies and they were so good I had to share.
Salted Caramel Cookies
Inspired by Cooking Classy
225 grams salted butter, room temperature
2 ½ cups plain flour
2 teaspoons corn flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
1 ¼ cups packed brown sugar
1/3 cup caster sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1 cup caramel chips
Fleur de sel for topping
Step 1: In a mixing bowl, mix together the flour, corn flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
Step 2: In another mixing bowl, using an electric mixer, mix together the butter and sugars. Once light and fluffy add the vanilla extract and eggs and mix until incorporated.
Step 3: Add in half of the flour mixture and once mixed in, add the second half of the mixture.
Step 4: Pour in the caramel chips and mix by hand.
Step 5: Scoop out about a rounded tablespoon of cookie dough for each cookie and place it on a grease proof cookie tray. Bake at 170 degrees Celsius fan forced for 10 minutes.
Step 6: Once out of the oven, sprinkle fleur de sel on top of the cookies.
