These salted caramel chocolate chip cookies, with caramel sauce in the dough, caramel bits, chocolate chips, and flaked sea salt are a perfect salty-sweet combination.
4 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
1 ½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon Kosher salt
1 ½ cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 sticks salted butter, room temperature
2 large eggs, room temperature
½ cup caramel sauce
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla
2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
1 cup caramel bits
2 tablespoons flaky sea salt
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and Kosher salt.
In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream the brown sugar, granulated sugar, and butter together until light and fluffy – about 4 minutes.
Add the vanilla and the eggs, one at a time, beating after each egg.
Pour in the caramel sauce and then spoon in the flour mixture. Beat until just combined.
Remove the bowl from the mixer and fold in the caramel bits and chocolate chips by hand.
Scoop heaping tablespoons of the dough onto the prepared baking sheets, 2-inches apart.
Sprinkle each cookie with a pinch of flaked sea salt.
Bake the cookies, one sheet at a time, until golden brown – about 15 minutes for each baking sheet.
