Serves: 18 cookies
Crispy on the edges and chewy in the center, these cookies are filled with chocolate chips and then drizzled with homemade salted caramel. Simple to make, these salted caramel chocolate chip cookies are the ultimate dessert.
  • ½ cup unsalted butter at room temperature
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg at room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1¾ cup all purpose flour
  • ¾ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¾ cup chocolate chips
  • Salted caramel for drizzling
  1. In a medium sized mixing bowl, cream together butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. Add egg and vanilla extract. Mix until well incorporated.
  2. In a different bowl, mix flour and baking soda until combined. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients. Mix until until combined.
  3. Fold in the chocolate chips until well distributed.
  4. 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.
  5. When ready to bake, preheat the oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with silicone baking mat or parchment paper.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. Warm up the salted caramel, and then use a spoon or fork to drizzle the salted caramel over the cookies.
  9. Serve the salted caramel chocolate chip cookies warm.
