Salted Caramel Thumbprints

This is a Simple Sugar Cookie dough that can be used to make 3 different types of cookies.

I chose the Salted Caramel Thumbprints..These cookies are delicious. I got the recipe from Dash… a little insert in our paper.

Bake 375 20 min
Makes about 3 doz.

3 C flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 salt
2 1/2 sticks unsalted butter
1 1/2 C sugar
1 large egg, beaten
1 Tbs milk
1 tsp vanilla

Cream butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add egg, milk and vanilla.

Combine flour, baking powder, and salt in large bowl.

Slowly beat dry ingredients into wet on low speed, increasing speed until dough comes together

Wrap dough in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour.

That’s the Simple Sugar Cookie dough recipe.

To make the Salted Caramel Thumbprints you need to add:

egg white, beaten
chopped peanuts
chopped pretzels
chewy caramel candies

Roll chilled dough into 1 inch balls. Roll each ball in beaten egg white, then in finely chopped peanuts and pretzels. Transfer to parchment_lined baking sheets, 2″ apart. Make an indentation in center of each cookie with your thumb. Cut chewy caramel candies in half, put one half on each cookie. Bake 20 min or until just brown around the edges.

These are great for dunking!

Enjoy!
