Ingredients

  • 10 Tbsp unsalted butter softened
  • 3/4 C light brown sugar
  • 1/4 C granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 C cake flour
  • 3/4 C bread flour
  • 3/4 C chocolate baking chunks
  • 3/4 C caramel bits
  • Flaked sea salt

Instructions

  • In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter and sugars. Beat in egg and vanilla, followed by remaining dry ingredients. Mix in caramel bits and chocolate chunks by hand. Chill dough for 2-4 hours or until chilled thoroughly.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a baking sheet with a silicone baking sheet or parchment paper. Using a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough, being sure to avoid caramel bits on the bottom. Space dough 2-inches apart on prepared baking sheet. Lightly sprinkle with flaked sea salt, if desired. Bake for 12-14 minutes or until lightly golden around the edges. If possible, carefully transfer silicone mat (or parchment paper) with cookies to a wire rack. Alternately, cool cookies on baking sheet. Do not transfer cookies to a wire rack until set completely, roughly 5-10 minutes.
  • Store cookies in an airtight container.

Notes

*If caramel is near the bottom or edges of the cookies, it will caramelize.
