Welcome to the 14th Annual Twelve Days of Christmas Cookies!
DAY 1: Caramel Peanut Butter Thumbprints
A soft peanut butter cookie, filled with homemade caramel, drizzled with dark chocolate, and then sprinkled with chopped peanuts.
If you like Snickers candy bars, you will love these cookies!
The homemade caramel filling makes more caramel than you will need for 1 batch of cookies. Once I open a can of sweetened condensed milk, I like to use the whole thing, so I always make a full batch of the caramel filling. You could halve the caramel recipe or make 2 batches of the peanut butter cookie dough, but I usually use part of the caramel in this recipe and the rest to make Chocolate Caramel Thumbprints. It is also great drizzled over ice cream or pie.
While we are cooking and baking this Christmas season, I hope that you will also remember that in addition to needing cookies, The World Needs Your Light!
