I got this recipe from the free French language Metro newspaper.
- 1 2/3 cup flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 3/4 cup butter
- 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Cherries or nuts for decoration (we didn’t use anything)
- Preheat oven to 375F.
- Mix together flour, baking powder and baking soda.
- In another bowl, mix together butter and brown sugar. Add eggs and vanilla.
- Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients.
- Drop by spoonfuls onto baking sheets.
- Top each cookie with a nut or cherry, if desired (we didn’t). Bake 8 to 10 minutes (ours needed 6).
Verdict: We made about 3 dozen cookies. I’m not sure why the recipe is called caramel cookies when they don’t really have any caramel taste. They were like chocolate chip cookies without the chocolate chips, so they were delicious. They were thin and crispy but still moist. Better, they were still moist the next day as well (and I don’t know how long that would be true for because I finished my share of the cookies day 2).
