Caramel-Chocolate Chip Sandwich Cookies Recipe
These cookies are more cake-like; a nice change from the more common chewier chocolate chip cookie. I've been known to add a little peanut butter to the filling too. —Lauren Reiff, East Earl, Pennsylvania
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1/4 cup honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1-1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
- 6 tablespoons butter, cubed
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons 2% milk
- 1-1/3 to 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
- 1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs, then honey and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips.
- 2. Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 in. apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool completely.
- 3. For filling, in a small saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Stir in brown sugar and milk; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cook and stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat; cool to room temperature.
- 4. Beat in enough confectioners' sugar to reach desired consistency. Spread 1-1/2 teaspoons filling onto bottoms of half of the cookies; cover with remaining cookies. Yield: 2-1/2 dozen.
