Caramel Filled Snickerdoodles




A great combination of caramel and cookie, especially delicious on cold winter nights with a warm cup of tea.

Step 1: Ingredients

1/2 cup butter or margarine
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp cream of tartar
1 egg
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
2 Tbsp sugar
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1 pkg caramels, unwrapped

Step 2: Making the Dough

In a medium bowl beat the butter margarine with an electric mixer for 30 seconds.

Add the 1 cup of sugar, baking soda and cream of tartar.

Beat until combined, scraping sides of bowl.

Beat in egg and vanilla untill combined.

Mix in the flour.

Chill dough 1 hour.

Step 3: Preparing to Bake

Preheat oven to 375F

Combine the 2 Tbsp of sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon in a bowl

Shape dough into 1 inch balls

Press a caramel piece into the center or each dough ball

Form dough around caramel and roll into a ball making sure caramel piece is completely enclosed

Roll each dough ball in the cinnamon sugar mixture

Step 4: Baking the Cookies

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 :)
