Place dough 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet

Bake at 375 for 11 minutes

Remove cookie sheet from oven and let cookies cool for a few minutes

Transfer to a wire rack to finish cooling

If the caramel gets hard after the cookies are cooled; throw them in the microwave for about 10 seconds and they soften right up. And the cookies are warm just like they are right out of the oven

These look yummy! You answered my question about the caramel hardening even before I asked. I like a good mind-reader! ;-)

And here I thought Snickerdoodles were perfect as is! Well, you have proved me wrong, because these look absolutely delicious :)
