Recipe notes and tips

Cool the dough It’s important because, as you can see from the picture, it is very sticky. It is easier to roll the dough into a ball after it has cooled.

Another reason you want to freeze the dough is because it helps the outside of the biscuit to bake faster than the inside, leaving a brownie cake as soft as the center. It is absolutely delicious with soft caramel.

Finally, cooling the dough prevents it from spreading. You really want to eat a thick cookie so you can fill the center with smooth caramel.

The best way to separate eggs: I like to split the shell in half. As I moved the yolk back and forth between the two eggshells, I let the egg whites fall into the bowl. Another simple method is to break the egg with one hand and spread your fingers slightly to let the egg whites fall off.

Additional tips:

  • Gently press the nuts into the dough to help them stick together better
  • Add a little sea salt to the caramel
  • Topped with chocolate in the design. You can make a swirl or overlapping grid pattern.
  • The remaining melted caramel can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks. For slicing apples, biscuits or ice cream.

½ teaspoon measuring spoon works well! !
