Directions

  1. Cream 1 cup butter or margarine. Gradually add brown sugar, creaming well. Add egg yolk and blend. Add flour, stirring until the mixture forms a dough. Chill slightly for easier handling.
  2. Roll dough into small balls, about the size of a marble. Place on an ungreased baking sheet and flatten to 1/8 inch thickness with the palm of the hand. Press with fork in one direction to make a design.
  3. Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 9 to 12 minutes until cookies just begin to brown very lightly. Remove from sheet while warm. Place flat sides of two cookies together with frosting, sandwich-style.
  4. To Make Browned Butter Frosting: Brown 2 tablespoons butter slightly in saucepan. Remove from heat and blend in 1 1/4 cups sifted confectioners' sugar. Gradually add 1/2 teaspoon vanilla and 4 to 5 teaspoons cream until it becomes a spreading consistency.

The name on these is slightly deceptive. They aren't actually caramel. What you have is a rich, brown sugar cookie with a browned butter frosting. I think the name is old fashioned; before browned butter became "cool" they just chose a name that reflected the flavor rather than the texture (again, there is no caramel texture here). I would definitely call these "Browned Butter sandwich cookies" now... cooler and more accurate! All that said, these are delicious. I make the cookies much larger (more like a walnut than a marble) and flatten them to more like 1/4 inch. Then I double the frosting! They come out chewy that way. Rich, but awesome!

These were fun to make and delicious! Unlike other sandwich cookies I have made, these held up well and were great to pack in lunches!

My 80 year old mother has made these cookies for as long as I can remember. Haven't met anyone who doesn't love them! They are requested often by her kids who come to visit from out of town (grandkids too!)
