Oh my goodness I got this recipe on a blog a few years back and when I make them, they are gone, boom just like that!
I suggest making these when your having friends over for dinner, or having a movie night, football party, any type of gathering where you can serve warm because that is when they are best. You can make ahead keep refrigerated and pop in the oven when your guest are ready.
Trust me write the recipe out because everyone is going to want a copy.
This cookie is only to be served warm, if for some strange reason they are not devoured, store in an air tight container and warm in the microwave for ten seconds.
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cups old fashioned oats
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
12 caramels (I use kraft)
12 tsp peanut butter
Preheat oven to 350.
Mix flour, salt, and baking powder together and set aside.
In a small sauce pan melt butter on medium/low heat until it has become a golded brown color and looks toffee like. Remove from heat.
In a medium bowl mix both sugars, egg and vanilla together well.
Now mix in your browned butter.
Mix in your oats and flour mixture.
Once your dough has come together refriderate for 20 minutes.
Once the dough has chilled a bit, remove from refrigerator and roll into 12 equal sized balls.
Place each cookie dough ball on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet about 2 inches a part.
Push a carmel sqaure into the center of each cookie dough ball.
You can form the sides of the cookies a bit if you want to cover the caramel more.
Top each caramel with a teaspoon of peanut butter.
Bake for 11-13 minutes or until the cookies are golden.
Allow to cool for about 10 minutes then enjoy.
Store in an air tight container and heat up in the microwave for about 10 seconds, they are best served warm. Happy Baking!
