Are you ready for some delicious cookies that will not last long in your cookie jars?
Kathleen was my helper in making these delicious cookies and she did a fabulous job. :-)
This is a 2 step process, on day 1 you will be preparing and making the dough.
You will need:
3 cups brown sugar
1 cup butter
2 teaspoons vanilla
6 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
Mix sugar and butter together, then add the eggs and mix well. Then add the vanilla, mix together and then add the dry ingredients. Mix well and shape into rolls and place it in plastic wrap. Put in the refrigerator overnight.
The second part takes place on day 2:
Unwrap the rolls and slice them to make cookies. Bake them at 350 degrees until done and be sure to not over bake them. Want them to be moist, not hard.
Elvis wanted to help.... or eat them.... something like that, lol!
While they are baking you will want to prepare the frosting. "Caramel" icing!
1/2 cup of butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup of milk
1/4 teaspoon salt
Melt butter in the saucepan, add brown sugar, milk and salt. Boil for one minute and cool slightly. Then add in powdered sugar until you have the desired consistency. :-)
Take a teaspoon and carefully frost the cookies, spreading it around with the back side of spoon to coat evenly.
Pick some of your prettiest cups and plates and enjoy the nice warm, delicious cookies with someone you love!
