Tis’ the season for fresh baked cookies!

Every December as it gets closer and closer to Christmas, all I want to do is stay in the kitchen, have the oven on all day, bake cookies, and bask in the aroma of cookies baking in the oven. Seriously, there’s no better time to be in the kitchen than during the winter.

With the oven on, the kitchen is probably the coziest place to be in the house. And with cookies baking in the oven? I never ever want to leave.

I recently made salted caramel. Super easy to make and takes just about 10 minutes. The hard part is waiting for it to cool and thicken. With a small mason jar full of salted caramel, I definitely want to put it to good use. So what could be better than drizzling it on top one of my favorite cookies? Chocolate chip.

Refrigerate the cookie dough for about an hour if your prefer crispy and chewy cookies. Refrigerate the dough longer, if you want softer, puffier cookies. Since the butter is at room temperature, the cookie is likely to spread. If the butter is cold, the cookie will not spread as much.

When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with silicone baking mat or parchment paper.

Use a cookie scooper or a tablespoon to make balls of cookie dough. Place them evenly apart. You’ll have to bake in two batches, about 10 cookie balls per baking sheet.

Bake the cookies for about 11-12 minutes until the cookies are browned. Remove the cookies from the oven, let them cool for about 4-5 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a cooling rack.

Warm up the salted caramel, and then use a spoon or fork to drizzle the salted caramel over the cookies.
