Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 20
  • ½ cup butter - room temp
  • ½ cup peanut butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • ½ cup white granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs - room temp
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • 2½ cups Bob's Red Mill All Purpose Flour
  • 10-15 soft caramel candies - chopped into small pieces
  • ½ cup salted peanut halves
  • A sprinkle of course sea salt for each cookie
  • Caramel topping for adding an extra drizzle (optional)
  1. Preheat oven to 375 F
  2. Using a stand mixer, cream together the butter, peanut butter and sugars
  3. While mixing, add in eggs one at a time.
  4. Add in vanilla, baking soda and corn starch
  5. Add in caramel pieces and peanut halves
  6. Slowly add in Bob's Red Mill flour - making sure it gets fully incorporated into the dough
  7. Scoop a spoon full of dough into your hands and roll into a ball - making sure no caramel pieces are visible. You can gently flatten the dough a little with your palm if you like a flatter cookie
  8. Place each ball on a foil lined greased cookie sheet and sprinkle with just a pinch of sea salt
  9. Bake for 10-12 minutes (Note: Caramel WILL ooze out - don't be alarmed)
  10. Allow to cool on pan for no longer than a minute or two before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling (Any excess caramel that oozed out should easily break off at this time)
  11. Serve with a glass of milk and enjoy!
