I was off at Tuesday Night Dinner with my college sorority sisters tonight, and came home to these chewy cookies, nice and warm out of the oven. J looked at what we had in the cabinet and found a recipe to try on his own. His creation is a delicious, perfectly- but not overly-sweet sugar cookie, with a caramel center. I had bought the caramels a few weeks back with the intent of making a caramel apple pie. That never happened, so I'm glad he used them for some cookies tonight!
When I asked J if he made any tweaks to the recipe or if he followed it exactly, the answer was:
.............. I probably put a little more butter... a little more sugar...." (cue puppy dog eyes)
Those ingredients never killed anyone! Besides those two liberties, I think he followed the recipe pretty closely, so you can check that out here on Barbara Bakes to try these out.
PS - for my faithful readers who remember my old Tuesday Night Dinner posts; here's an update on tonight! Shannon was on dessert duty and brought some chocolate chip cookies and vanilla fro-yo. Lindsay served them on the cutest owl plates ever, sent up to Boston from her mom who knew they were a must-have for our TND tradition. This dessert tastes really, REALLY good with some Alamos Malbec from Argentina, in case you were wondering. (I was on wine duty!)
|TND Dessert - I even got a Kappa Green owl plate - thank you Barb! xoxo|
