There are lots of fun cookie recipes this time of year and I decided to take our favorite sugar cookie recipe straight over the top by stuffing it with some Werther’s soft caramels. I mean, isn’t everything better with caramel? Sprucing up my favorite sugar cookie recipe with Werther’s was actually a cinch. I whipped up my favorite cookie dough and wrapped it around a Werther’s caramel. Then, I slipped them in the oven to bake. Once they cooled down I took a bite into one and marveled at the smooth, creamy melted Werther’s center. It was the perfect new twist on an old favorite!
Werther’s Caramel Stuffed Sugar Cookies
1 batch perfect holiday sugar cookie dough
24 Werther’s caramels (or more)
1. Prepare the sugar cookie dough according to directions. Pinch off a 2-inch piece of dough and wrap it around one Werther’s caramel. Roll the dough in granulated sugar. Place on a lined baking sheet and bake according to directions.
2. Once the cookies have cooled for 10 minutes on the baking sheet remove them to a wire rack. Cool for about 15 more minutes. Then serve!
