Author: Lisa Longley


  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 14 TBSPS unsalted butter 1 3/4 stick at room temperature
  • 2 tsps vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup caramel bits
  • 2 TBSPS kosher salt


  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
  • With your mixer on medium, mix together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
  • Mix in the eggs (one at a time) and then the vanilla until well combined.
  • Slowly mix in the flour mixture until well combined, with your mixer set to low. Scrape down the paddle and the sides of the bowl as necessary.
  • Add the caramel bits and mix on low until fully combined.
  • Roll the dough into one inch sized balls. Place on a parchment lined baking sheet or silicon mat and press down slightly. Sprinkle a small amount of the kosher salt on top of each cookie. Space the cookies about two inches apart.
  • Bake for 13 minutes, rotating the pan halfway through the baking.
  • Let cool on the pan for about two minutes before moving to a cooling rack to cool completely.
