Caramel Brickle Thumbprints


Hello! I shared this recipe for Caramel Brickle Thumbprints last Christmas on Margot's sweet blog Newfoundlander at Heart and have been meaning to share it here for awhile. It's a great recipe, and perfect for fall! With the holiday season coming up, I'm sure everybody is going to need a few go-to cookie recipes to turn to. These are great not only because they're delicious, but because they're small, so you won't feel guilty having a bunch! 


You will need:
2 1/4 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup soft butter
1 tsp. baking powder
1 egg
1/2 tsp. vanilla
3/4 cup toffee baking chips

20 caramel squares
1/4 cup half and half


Start by mixing the flour, sugar, egg, butter and baking powder into a dough.


Add your toffee bits and mix. You may have to use your hands to knead them in completely.


Roll dough into 1 inch balls and place a couple inches apart on the cookie sheet. Then make an indention in the center of each cookie with your thumb.

Pop them in the oven at 350 degrees F for 11-14 minutes or until lightly browned.

Then melt the caramels with the half and half and mix. Pour a bit of the caramel mixture into the crater of each little cookie. Enjoy!


I think I was able to make 60 or 65 cookies from this recipe, so it makes a lot if you keep them on the small side.
