Frequently Asked Questions
Once baked, let the cookies cool completely before transferring to an airtight container. To keep them nice and soft, it’s best to keep them at room temperature and they’ll keep fresh for 2 to 3 days. They are good after that time, but will start to loose their softness.
Yes! These freeze well, so be sure to make a double batch! Let the cookies cool and then freeze them solid on a baking sheet. Once frozen, place them in a freezer bag or container and they will keep well for up to 3 months. Thaw them at room temperature to enjoy.
The trick to making bakery soft cookies is to under bake them ever so slightly. They should be very very lightly browned, not golden brown in color. Take them out of the oven around the 10 minutes mark and let them cool to firm up.
These salted caramel soft cookies are pretty darn tasty as they are! I don’t advise changing the cookie dough recipe, but you can easily use any colored chocolate chips you like, or mix up the candy. M&Ms would be great in these!

- Make sure that your butter is softened before using it. It will be easier to combine with the other ingredients which will result in a more even texture.
- Don’t over mix the dough when you add in the flour. This can cause the gluten to overdevelop and lead to dense cookies.
- Let the cookies cool fully before serving or storing.

Be very careful when you adjust the the amount of cookies you want to make. The amount of ingredients changes, but when it says 1 cup 2 sticks of butter, the 1 cup will change to 2 cups, but the number of sticks of butter stays the same. Go by the cups not the sticks of butter.
I’m going to try these for a Christmas Cookie Exchange. They look and sound so yummy! Just wondering how many cookies does one batch make? Thanks
Hooray! It should make about 2 dozen.
Could you please explain the measurement for the butter “1 cup 2 sticks butter”?
Is it 1 cup =2 sticks or 1 cup=2 sticks
