Soft & Chewy Brown Butter Snickerdoodles with Caramel Bits

Ingredients

  • 1 1/4 cup Brown Butter (2 1/2 sticks)
  • 1 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla
  • 2 3/4 cups All Purpose Flour
  • 2 teaspoons Cream of Tartar
  • 2 teaspoons Baking Soda
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1 cup Caramel Bits
  • 1 tablespoon Cinnamon (Reserve for cinnamon topping)
  • 3 tablespoons Sugar (Reserve for cinnamon topping)

Directions

Step 1
Brown the 1 1/4 cups of butter (see post for instructions on how to brown butter). Let it cool before mixing it with the sugar.
Step 2
Mix the brown butter and sugar in a mixer until it becomes light & fluffy. Approximately 3-4 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time making sure they are incorporated. Add the vanilla and mix until combined.
Step 3
Sift the flour, salt, baking soda & cream of tartar in a separate bowl. Add it to the wet ingredients slowly in increments until combined. Mix in the caramel bits.

Cover and chill the dough for at least an hour.
Step 4
While the dough is chilling, in a small bowl combine the cinnamon sugar for the topping. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

After the dough has chilled roll about 2-3 tablespoons of dough into balls and roll them in the cinnamon and sugar mixture. The dough will be tough to scoop out at first but the warmth from your hands will soften it very quickly.
Step 5
Place them 2 inches apart on a silver or light colored baking sheet with parchment. And bake for 9-10 minutes until you see the edges of the cookies turn a light golden brown color and firm up. Let cool completely before moving or eating. Enjoy!
Makes about 20-24 cookies.
