These delicious Easy Salted Caramel Cookies are perfect to satisfy your sweet tooth. They are very sweet and indulgent. You will surely impress your family or friends with these cookies.

Well, we thought – why not make caramel cookies?
Salted caramel is sooooo good! Combine that with cookies, and you have a sugar treat dream.
These salted caramel cookies are crispy on the outside and soft in the middle with a delicious caramel taste.
If you want to go the extra mile, we will drop a recipe for how to make the salted caramel sauce.
How To Make Salted Caramel Sauce:
You Will Need:
1 cup (207g) granulated sugar
1/2 cup (120ml) water
1/4 cup (56g) unsalted butter
1/2 cup (120ml) heavy whipping cream
1/2 to 1 tsp salt
1. In a medium to large saucier pan, combine the granulated sugar and water. Cook over medium-low heat until the sugar is completely dissolved, about 3 to 5 minutes. Add the butter and let it melt.
2. Over medium heat, bring the mixture to a boil. Stop whisking and don’t whisk at all during this part to help avoid crystallization. Allow boiling until the mixture turns a deep golden copper color, about 10-15 minutes, maybe longer depending on your stove. Keep an eye on it, but do not stir. If needed, you can occasionally tip the pan from side to side to help things cook evenly.
3. Remove the pan from the heat and immediately add in the heavy whipping cream in a slow, steady stream. The caramel will bubbly up quite a bit, so be careful with this step. Whisk quickly and well as you add the cream, whisking until well combined.
4.Add the salt and gently fold the sauce.
5. Allow the caramel sauce to cool. It will be fairly thin but will thicken as it cools. Store it in the fridge for up to two weeks.
