Megan is right. We have totally turned into a food blog. But I spend a lot of time cooking. The people that live at my house want to eat multiple times a day. Weird, huh?
This school year, the kids have been taking their lunch to school most days. And I like to send them some small treat to go with their sandwich and fruit. Something made with love and sinfully delicious.
I pinned this recipe ages ago. I kept looking at it over and over. Then, recently, Megan and I went antiquing. One of our stops was at a flea market and I found a fantastic and cheap brand-new Wilton Whoopie Pie pan! It was like a sign. It was time to make the Brownie Cookies with Salted Caramel Creme Filling!! And lucky timing…A Monday Holiday! Let the baking begin!
This recipe was a bit more labor intensive than I typically tackle but I decided I was up for the challenge. If you’d like to see the recipe in its entirety, you can find it here.
I thoroughly sprayed the pan and the cookies popped right out.
Then, while they cooled, I made the caramel. Yep, you heard me right. Homemade caramel. It’s a thing of beauty.The caramel sauce gets combined with butter, powdered sugar, and salt. Then you just beat it until fluffy and fantastic. Spread a bit (or a lot) on the flat side of the cookies and then top with another cookie. Voila!Quite a bit of work.
But so worth it.
Plus, I may still have creme filling in my fridge waiting for the next round of cookies.*
*Who are we kidding? It’s totally just waiting on a spoon.
