Christmas equals cookies, right?

Even though I fall into the category of cookie monster mama, I’ve hit my max on gingerbread and peppermint this holiday season. And so, I’m switching gears with my baking to salted caramel inspired treats. Salt caramel is that perfect blend of sweet and salty – just what I need after a long day!

Hope you love these as much as I do … maybe even save a few for that upcoming cookie exchange or a jolly Santa!
