New and Improved Version of This
Have you ever made a dish and immediately swore you would never make it again?
Not because it isn't good but because it is too good.
You know how I have the theory that if you make it from scratch it is healthy. This is one of those exceptions. The cookie dough and the caramel I made from scratch. However, this dish is the definition of unhealthy.
This dish is like crack but it food form. Not that I know what crack is like because I have never tried any form of drugs but I assume this is what it would be like.
All you need is one batch of cookie dough and one batch of caramel.
Well and parchment paper, a 9x13 baking dish, and an oven.
1. Preheat that oven to three fifty.
2. Whip up a batch of cookie dough. Divide the dough in half and press half into a parchment lined pan. Pop that one out by pulling up on the parchment paper. Put in the fridge. Line the pan with parchment again and press the other half of the dough in the pan. Place pan in fridge.
3. Prepare your caramel. If you use my recipe you will only need half of it. You can make caramel squares with the rest. Or caramel apples like my husband wanted. Bring it up to two forty, the softball stage. Once complete stir it to cool it down.
4. Once the caramel starts to cool slightly and starts to thicken spread it out over the cookie dough. Peal the other layer of cookie dough off of the parchment and set it over the caramel.
5. Bake for thirty five to forty minutes or until in starts to turn golden brown on the top.
6. Remove from oven, let cool about fifteen to twenty minutes. Use that bottom layer of parchment to pull the whole thing out of the pan. Transfer to a wire rack to complete the cooling process.
You can taste it when it is molten hot but honestly I feel that the flavors calm down a bit and get better the more they cool. Only, two thousand calories per bite. I am sure my daughter, the official taste tester, would approve but I just didn't feel a one year old should partake. Mean mommy.
