We invite you to share this post and some of your favorite posts on Food Frenzy. · Food Frenzy · Feb 20, 2011 · AM I made these last night and they were SO easy and quick.Mine didn’t get as thin as I would have liked but they most certainly are not a flop.
I have not had much success cutting these cookies into non-round shapes. Once the cookies have cooled completely, simply pick up each cookie and snap off the ragged edges.
The goal here is not to “cut out” the cookies like you would with an unbaked cookie dough, but rather to stamp “perforations lines” onto each soft, semi-molten cookie. The excess will break away cleanly, leaving you with a perfectly round cookie.
You can also use another caramel-dipped cookie as a support by placing the two cookies together in a “T” shape.
Once the feet become hard, store the cookies in an airtight container to prevent the caramel feet from becoming sticky.
Start by setting a piece of parchment on your counter top.
(It’s hard to do this on a sheet pan, because most sheet pans are not perfectly flat).In Lexington, you can find cocoa nibs at Liquor Barn, or you can buy them in bulk at Good Foods Market.I think these would make a great addition to a Tea Party, or you can hoard them for yourself in the cookie jar.Use a small ice cream scoop or Tablespoon to measure out even, rounded portions of dough.Drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheet, bearing in mind they will spread considerably; leave about 4” between each cookie.When you’re ready to serve, these cookies will now stand up straight on the plate.
