The pin was sourced from this lovely blog by a very talented lady in Sydney called Swah. I was determined to bake these biscuits for myself and here’s how I did it:
You will need:
1 cup brown sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups plain flour
250g bag Nestle caramel chips
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp sea salt + extra to sprinkle on top of biscuits
1. Preheat the oven to 170C and line baking trays with baking paper.
2. Cream the butter and sugar for around 6 minutes until it becomes smooth and creamy.
3. Add the egg and vanilla extract. Beat these in well.
4. Throw in the caramel chips, flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Mix this all in gently until everything has just combined – this took my mixer less than a minute with help from the good ol’ wooden spoon. The original recipe recommends not overbeating at this stage or else the mixture will become tough.
5. Use tablespoons to scoop mixture out onto lined baking trays. Sprinkle some sea salt onto the tops of the biscuits. I fit three rows of three onto each baking tray and I think that was the perfect amount because these babies spread!
6. Pop them in the oven and set a timer/alarm for 12 – 14 minutes. I turned the trays around when there was about 5 minutes to go, just to help them bake evenly. They should be a nice honey brown colour when they’re ready. If you want them to be a little softer and chewier, I’d leave them in for 10 minutes and see how you go.
7. Bask in the glory that is having just made the most delicious and moreish biscuits and being the envy of every single person you know.
Are you a salted caramel fan like me? I’ll eat pretty much anything claiming to be salted caramel. Ice cream, biscuits, chocolate, icey poles, the lot.
