Salted Caramel Brownie Cookies for The Ultimate Cookie Exchange #SundaySupper

I AM NOT A BAKER. I bake out of a box. I received a Kitchenaid mixer a year ago and have tried a few times to make cookies from scratch. Once I failed miserably. Why you ask? Because I am a cook, I substitute. You can't substitute in baking. I thought I could use flavored coffee creamer in place of milk. See, I'm not a baker.
So this week's Sunday Supper is favorite cookie exchange. My signature Snowball cookies were already being baked by a few others in the Sunday Supper family. So, I thought I would give this little baking thing a try once again and make Salted Caramel Brownie Cookies.

Have you ever burnt chocolate in the microwave? Forgotten a key ingredient? Had your Kitchenaid throw flour all over you?  Thanks to these cookies, I have! Somehow, by the grace of the baking gods, with everything that wen't wrong, my cookies turned out pretty and delicious.

I found a recipe for Salted Chocolate Brownie Cookies from Season's and Suppers. I used her recipe but left out the second half of chocolate chips. After putting a thumb print in the cookie, I put them in the oven for 5 minutes at 350, removed and added caramel sauce to the thumb mark. Back in the oven for an additional 5 minutes and sprinkled some sea salt on them immediately. You can find her recipe here and use the adjustments I mentioned above.

  3. You know, I bake all the time - but even I have disasters once in a while. One time I made a cookie recipe 3 times before doing it right. Each time I left something out. The first time I left out the sugar - blah. The next time I left out the leavening, and had beautiful bricks. Finally the third time was the charm.
    Keep at it! Even the best have flops :)

  5. I've had my share of disasters in the kitchen over the years. Some with baking and some with cooking. I'm glad you were able to make these cookies and share them with us today.

  7. lol, even as a self-professed "baker" I've still had all those things happen to me and more! I've had plenty of epic fails in the kitchen but I just laugh and keep on baking. I'm glad you didn't let these little mishaps stop you from creating these amazing cookies. They've got everything I love in one little bite (yes, I say "one little bite" because seriously, I would inhale these, no joke).

  22. Kitchen disasters are boud to happen. As long as nobody gets hurt, you can just add it to the collection of baking stories you'll accumulate. Don't give up :-) You'll have a good laugh about it down the road. These look very tasty :-)
