When you bite into one of these Caramel Stuffed Snickerdoodles, the caramel is melted and ooey, gooey.
Happy Holidays! This is Diane from Recipes for our Daily Bread. I am so excited to be a guest blogger today on Princess Pinky Girl. I am also excited that it is December and Christmas is coming soon. My family enjoys baking during Christmas, especially cookies. Nothing I bake brings a smile on someone’s face more than a cookie.
My special needs son and the chief baker in my family, Caleb, lights up from ear to ear while baking and handing out cookies he helps make. Caleb has had 17 brain surgeries, Cerebral Palsy, and seizures. He loves to bake these Caramel Stuffed Snickerdoodles. I took our favorite Snickerdoodle recipe and stuffed them with caramel. The caramel was a perfect match with my Snickerdoodles. When you bite into one of these Caramel Stuffed Snickerdoodles, the caramel is melted and ooey, gooey.

My disclaimer: These cookies are meant to be eaten right out of the oven or reheated in the microwave for 10 seconds. Once the caramel cools down it will harden and is not as fun to eat
Caramel Stuffed Snickerdoodle Cookies
- 1/4 cup butter (room temperature)
- 1/4 cup shortening
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon cream of tarter

- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1-1/4 cup & 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

- With an electric mixer, cream together the butter, shortening, and sugar.
- Add the egg and beat until creamy.
- Add the baking soda, salt, cream of tarter, and flour.
- Mix until blended.
- Unwrap the caramels.
- Shape the dough into 1 tablespoons size balls. I use a 1 tablespoon size ice cream scoop.
- Wrap the cookie dough around each caramel or divide the cookie dough into two smaller balls. Press your thumb into each one. Add the caramel in the center and press the edges together.
- Gentle roll into a ball.
