How to Make Caramel Stuffed Snickerdoodles
Start by creaming together the butter and the sugar. This is an important step – it allows the butter to coat the sugar and create a smooth texture.
Use soft, chewy caramels. Make a small indention in the cookie dough and place the caramel in the center. Be sure to completely wrap the caramel with cookie dough.
Roll the cookie dough in the cinnamon-sugar coating. You want to make sure the cookies are completely coated in the cinnamon and sugar before baking them.
Bake until the edges just begin to golden. These cookies are meant to be soft and chewy, so watch them carefully to prevent overbaking.
- I recommend using a soft caramel for this recipe. You want a caramel that is easy for the dough to roll around and a soft caramel won’t harden after the cookies have cooled.
- Sprinkle some large-flake sea salt on top of these cookies or use a Salted Caramel candy to turn them into a Salted Caramel Snickerdoodle
- If you do not have a kitchen scale to weigh the ingredients, be sure to use a spoon to lightly fill your measuring cup with flour and then sweep across with the back of a knife.
