Introduction: Caramel Stuffed Snickerdoodle Cookies

About: Hi. I love to make stuff whether it's food, dessert or jewelry. I even started my own jewelry business based in Massachusetts.

Hi guys. So today we're going to be making some delicious caramel stuffed snickedoodles. And no there aren't any snickers involved.


1 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1/2 cup softened butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 larger egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
10-13 caramel squares

Cinnamon sugar coating
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Step 1: Combine Your Dry Ingredients

In a large mixing bowl, combine your flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt and cream of tartar.

Step 2: Beat the Butter and Sugar

In a separate bowl, using a stand mixer or handheld mixer beat the sugar and butter until it's light and fluffy. Next add in your egg and vanilla.

Step 3: Step 3

Now you can add your flour mixture about half cup at a time. Mix it all until well combined. Repeat this step until you have cookie dough*.

*Tip: if your dough isn't looking like dough, just make and add more of your flour mixture*

Step 4: Chill Your Dough

Wrap your dough with plastic wrap and chill your dough for anywhere between 30 minutes to 2 days. I chilled mine overnight. (If you're short on time, you can put it in the freezer for10 minutes)

Step 5: Add Your Caramels

Ok here comes the fun part. Get your dough and scoop about a tablespoon of it and roll it into balls. Flatten each ball and place your caramel in the middle. Reseal the ball and roll back into a ball.

Step 6: Sugar Mixture

Mix cinnamon and sugar for the topping
Stir your rolled balls into the sugar mixture to your heart's desire.

Step 7: Bake Them!!!

Place your cookies on cookie sheet and bake them at 350° degrees for 10-12 minutes for larger cookies, for smaller cookies bake them for 9-11 minutes.

If you want, you could make a caramel sauce and add any toppings to your snickerdoodles, for example, I added almonds
