Salwaa Smith – Cape Malay Cooking & Other Delights
250g soft butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 tsps caramel essence
2 large eggs
3 cups self-raising flour
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 cups caramel chips
1 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Line baking trays with greaseproof paper.
Cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the caramel essence and eggs.
Sift in the self-raising flour and bicarbonate of soda. Mix until the flour is incorporated with the butter mixture. Add the caramel chips and walnuts. Mix until combined. The dough will be a soft consistency.
Spoon a dessertspoon of the cookie mixture on to the baking trays and just let it drop off the spoon, you may want to use another spoon or you finger to push it off the spoon. The cookies will spread quite alot so leave lots of space in between .
Bake in a preheated oven for about 15 – 20 minutes. If you want a soft chewy cookie remove at 15 minutes if a crunchy cookie is required bake 5 minutes longer. Leave to cool on the baking tray, when completely cold move to a cooling rack. Makes about 36 cookies.
