Fall – time for Caramel Cookies
Fall flavours are amazing, it really is harvest season. Grains and baking take up a bigger part of my fall meals planning. The scent of baked cookies from a warm oven become a welcome addition to the home atmosphere. Spices, apples, fresh nuts, caramel and maple are all reappearing in our menus.
I was craving caramel but didn’t want anything too sweet. The oatmeal and nuts in this recipe cut down on the sugary sweetness of the caramel.
To make this recipe you will need:
½ cup butter
½ cup white sugar
½ cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour
½ tsp baking soda
½ tasp baking powder

Scoop onto a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake at 375 for about 10 minutes.
Heavenly dunked into a latte.
