Caramel Filled Pretzel Cookies
This weekend I made these amazing caramel cookies after I was asked to bake for our new families at our school. We are having back to school night tomorrow and they welcome all the new families with a basket filled with cookies and treats. I think it is really a nice touch.
I made these cookies in a few hours. The longest time it takes is the refrigeration time. You form the cookies, place them in the fridge and a few hours or days later you can bake them off in 10 minutes.
They were really simple and I was able to make a few extra for the family. I really liked that the recipe made 4 dozen cookies, that is a great amount to give away and keep some yourself.
Now for the recipe
- 3 sticks of butter , softened
- 1 cup of granulated sugar
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 large eggs
- 1 TB vanilla extract
- 4 cups of all purpose flour
- 2 TB cornstarch
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1 ts salt
- 3 cups crushed pretzels
- 4 dozen Rolo candies
Preheat oven to 350 and grease or use parchment paper on cookie sheet.
Cream butter and sugars together in a large bowl. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
In a separate bowl combine flour, cornstarch, baking soda and salt. Add to butter mixture.
Stir until combined. Stir in crushed pretzels. Use about 1 TB of dough, roll each ball around a Rolo, completely sealing the candy inside the dough.
Chill for at least 2 hours or up to a couple days if you don't want to eat them right away.
Bake for 8-11 minutes until edges are lightly brown.
Allow to cool on the cookie sheet for 5 minutes and then cool completely on wire rack.
Place 3 cups of pretzels in a large baggie and using a rolling pin crush until small pieces remain.
