caramel chip cookies

today is one of those crazy days! It’s raining and freezing which makes getting all 5 little ones in and out of the car just a little bit more difficult. I then reversed out of the preschool carpark instead of driving out and hit the gutter a little fast and damaged the bumper bar (wishing it was a black bumper bar not a shiny one), I had guests coming at 10 for a blog post and didn’t have any thing to offer them for morning tea. I just knew I had to whip something up…and fast.

So I grabbed a packet of those delicious new caramel chips, read the recipe on the back of the pack, chucked it all in the trusty thermomix and got baking! I rolled up half the dough and refrigerated it and baked the half. They were still a little warm when my guests arrived……ahhhhhh, phew.

What you’ll need
125g butter, softened
3/4 (165g) brown sugar
1 egg
1 3/4 cups self raising flour (I just used plain with 1tsp baking powder)
1/2 pack of caramel chips (or chocolate or raisins or whatever is going)

Cube the butter and place in Thermomix bowl with sugar and egg. Process on speed 4 for 20 seconds, scrape down bowl and process another 10 seconds on speed 4. Add in sifted flour and process for another 20 seconds on speed 4. Remove mixture to a large bowl and tip in caramel chips, fold through the mixture evenly. Roll into balls, flatten and bake 15-20 minutes in a 170 degree oven. Now I like to refrigerate my dough so roll it into 2 logs, wrap in cling wrap for at least 1/2 an hour. Slice and bake in a 180 degrees oven for at least 20 minutes. Yum.


  1. I did not estimate my ability to park my large car in a smallish space and my front bumper got very damaged…it is repaired now,but looked nasty and ruined,as our car is opal white.
    We are purchasing a thermo mix next year,and I can not wait!!!

  4. Try adding a sprinkle of sea salt on top of the biscuit before baking. Yummy!
