Caramel Oatmeal Cookies

I had a bag of Kraft Caramel Bits leftover from the Apple Pie Caramel Apples project we did a few weeks ago. Since then, every time I open the cupboard the bag of caramel bits is staring at me!!! I decided I better bake something with those bits asap... before they ended up becoming a late night snack! Of course I took to Pinterest.com, searched, and found a recipe for delicious-looking Caramel Oatmeal Cookies (which uses the caramel bits). I wasn't sure how oatmeal and caramel would go together...


But O.M.G.!!!!! Seriously, these might be the best cookies I've ever had. SERIOUSLY. They are chewy, gooey, perfectly-spiced oatmeal cookies spotted with more chewy, gooey rich caramel goodness. I only made a half batch (since I wasn't sure how they'd turn out)... I am actually sad I didn't make the entire batch, they will probably be gone by tomorrow. My sister and our good friend were at the house when I pulled these little morsels of joy out of the oven and they couldn't stop eating them either! I sent some cookies home to my friend's husband (also a big food lover) and he immediately requested the recipe. I don't know what else to say except... these Caramel Oatmeal Cookies are amazing!!!!!


Caramel Oatmeal Cookies
recipe from sixsistersstuff.com

(Makes 5 dozen cookies)
Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
3 cups quick or old-fashion oats, uncooked
1 package Kraft Caramel Bits

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  In a small bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt.  In a large bowl, cream together butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla extract.  Gradually beat in flour mixture.  Fold in oats and caramel bits.   Drop by rounded tablespoons onto baking sheets lined with parchment paper.  Cook for 10-12 minutes, or until golden brown.

 


Note:  Let the cookies cool before you try to take them off the parchment paper or else the caramel bits will pull out of the bottom of the cookie! Once cooled, the cookies won't stick and will easily come off the paper.

yum... Yum... YUM!!!!!!!!



Enjoy!! I know we sure did...
