Caramellini

image

They are super quick, I made them this morning, before going to work. And besides quick, they are also the easiest cookies ever, with a delightful caramel flavor! With Thanksgiving ringing in the holiday season for shoppers and this coming Sunday being the First Advent or people in Europe ( the 4 Sundays leading up to Christmas) I think I can start getting in to my traditional seasonal cookies here soon. This one is not a classic Christmas cookie in Switzerland, (there are many others I would not make any other time of year) but I have been adding this one, because it’s caramel flavor and slight crunch are too good to resist.

Can’t wait to try them tomorrow as a topper for my Egg Nog Ice Cream! It will be sooooo awesome!

Ingredients

  • 1 stick butter, unsalted, softened

  • 1 tbsp honey or molasses

  2. Mix first 6 ingredients in a bowl.
  3. Mix Flour and baking powder, then add to the bow, stir until combined.
  4. On wax paper, form into a 2″-3″ diameter roll, chill in the fridge or freezer until firm
  5. Using a sharp knife, cut into 1/8″ thick slices and place on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet. (if the cookies deform when cutting, it’s not chilled enough)
