Toffee Caramel Cookies

Hello there.

Long time no see.

Well, it's officially been 1 month since my last post... and let's just say that a new recipe is long overdue.  ONE MONTH OVERDUE.

Anyways, I thought I'd try to make something new... to hopefully make up for this lack of baking that's been going on lately... not okay.

The beginning of the semester is always busy... move back in, get re-situated, get your schedule finalized, buy books, catch up with friends........ so much to do!  Add in rush, and you can say goodbye to your pillow for a few days...

But it's worth it!  Trust me, these sweet KDs are definitely worth it!

They really are the best.  And so I figured... why not bake for them, right? :) 

Would you like a toffee caramel cookie?

Baking with caramels can get a little sticky... but these cookies are definitely worth giving a shot!  Crunchy, buttery toffee bits mixed in with soft, chewy caramels... mmmmmm :)

And here's the recipe!  Happy Baking!

Toffee Caramel Cookies

2 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar

2 eggs
1 package Heath Bar Toffee Bits
About 20 Kraft Caramels, cut into 1/4s
