Caramel Shortbread Sandwich Cookies

Yields 45 cookies

Ingredients

  • 1 Jar Liquid Gold Caramel Sauce
  • 1½ cups unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Directions:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  2. Place the butter, sugar, vanilla, and salt in a medium bowl. With an electric mixer, beat on high until very light and fluffy, 3-5 minutes.
  3. Scrape the bowl and beat again to make sure the mixture is very smooth. Turn the mixer on low and slowly add in the flour. Once fully combined, turn off the mixer, as to not over mix the dough.
  4. Flour a work surface and roll the dough out evenly, ⅛ inch thick. Use a 2-inch cookie cutter to cut out the cookies. Move them to the cookie sheet using a flat metal spatula. Try to cut as many cookies as possible in the first batch, because each time you roll out the dough, the cookies will be a little tougher in texture.
  5. Gather the remaining dough and roll it back out. Cut out as many cookies as possible in the second batch. Spread the cookies out on the baking sheets an inch a apart.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes, until the edges are lightly golden brown. Cool completely and move onto plate.
  7. Then flip half the cookies over. Spoon a teaspoon of the Liquid Gold Caramel Sauce onto the cookies with the bottom-side-up. Press another cookie on top of the caramel to create cookie sandwiches.
  8. Optional: add marshmallow fluff, Nutella, or coconut shreds inside the cookies.
