Peach Caramel Cookies
Peach Caramel Cookies are an explosion of gooey deliciousness! These cookies are filled with peaches, cinnamon and caramel bits. The caramel bits soften while baking so you get tiny bursts of caramel in each bite. These cookies are so decadent and addictive, a plate of five or six is easy to down before you blink your eyes.
I loved the taste of peaches and caramel together. These were truly a wonderful treat. I will tell you the first batch (the one I photographed) I used only 3 cups of flour. Subsequent batches I increased the flour to 3 1/2 cups so the cookies held their shape a little better and weren’t quite so fragile. The taste was great in both cases although I preferred the later batches.
When I was busy making up peach desserts from our six peach trees back in July, I made sure I made several new kinds of cookies. John likes to take cookies with him everywhere and drop them off to friends, so I made several kinds of Peach Cookies and stashed them in the freezer. I got a note back from the person who got these saying how much they enjoyed them. I sampled more than my share and thought they were spectacular.
If you’re looking for a cookie that’s not the same old chocolate or peanut butter model, then consider trying Peach Caramel Cookies with peaches and caramel bits. One bite is heavenly, two bites are divine, three bites and you’re hooked forever! 🙂
Peach Caramel Cookies are sensational!
These are great cookies to take to the office or share with friends.
Each one is ooey, gooey and delicious!
Here’s what I did.
I used these ingredients. I increased the flour on subsequent batches.
Place softened butter in a mixing bowl. Add sugar, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, salt and baking soda.
Mix with an electric mixer until smooth.
Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add peaches and caramel bits.
Stir ingredients with a wooden spoon to combine.
Scoop ingredients with an ice cream or cookie scoop and place on greased baking sheets.
Bake at 350 about 12-15 minutes or until done.
Once you start eating Peach Caramel Cookies, it’s hard to stop!
Peach Caramel Cookies just dissolve in your mouth.
I loved all the caramel bits in each cookie.
