Caramel Cookies

Who ever said dessert had to be bad for your body?  Well these caramel cookies prove that person wrong!  The cookies are super tasty, light and chewy, and couldn't be any simpler to make.  With few ingredients and minimal steps you can whip up a batch in a flash!  And the best part is you don't have to feel guilty about enjoying every bite!

I usually have trouble rolling cookie dough into a log, so my cookies turned out more like an oblong than a perfect circle... but I think it gives them character. ;)

Caramel Cookies
taken from Weight Watchers
(1 PointsPlus per serving)


1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup dark brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup flour
3/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda


Preheat oven to 400°F.

In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, cream butter, sugar, egg and vanilla extract. Add remaining ingredients and beat thoroughly.

Scrape dough out of bowl and onto a large piece of plastic wrap. Roll dough into a log, about 2 1/2-inches wide; completely wrap dough in plastic and refrigerate until firm, at least 20 minutes or up to overnight.

Cut dough into 1/8-inch-thick slices and arrange on several large ungreased cookies sheets about 1- to 1 1/2-inches apart. Bake until lightly browned around edges, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Allow cookies to cool on cookie sheet for about 1 minute and then remove to a wire rack to cool completely. Yields 1 cookie per serving. (1 PointsPlus per serving)
