Serves: 3 Dozen
 
Ingredients
  • 2 Cups + 2 Tablespoons Flour
  • ½ Teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ¾ cup Salted Butter, softened
  • 1 Cup Light Brown Sugar
  • ½ Cup Sugar
  • 1 Egg, at room temperature
  • 1 Egg Yolk, at room temperature
  • 2 Teaspoons Vanilla Extract
  • ½-3/4 Cup Semi-Sweet Mini Chocolate Chips
  • 1 Cup Caramel Bits
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.
  2. Mix the flour and baking soda in a bowl and set aside.
  3. With an electric mixer or stand mixer with a paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars together. Add the egg, egg yolk, and vanilla and mix well. Gradually add the flour mixture and stir until a dough forms (may take a couple minutes of stirring). Fold in the chocolate chips (do not add the caramels yet). Do not overmix the dough at any point in this process.
  4. Chill dough for at least 30 minutes (or up to 5 days) in the refrigerator. Use a cookie scoop and place onto ungreased baking sheet or use parchment paper. Press several caramel bits into the tops of the cookies. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until edges are slightly browned. The centers should appear very soft and puffy.
