These Chewy Caramel Chocolate Chunk Cookies are not only my husbands favorite cookie fresh out of the oven but they stay chewy for days after baking.
I haven’t quite figured out if this is because of the easy and delicious recipe or if the method of cooking is sealing in that perfect texture for so long.
When making these caramel chocolate chunk cookies I used a pizza stone after my husband suggested it. He had recently ate a cookie that he said was the best one he had ever had and the bakers secret was that she used a pizza stone.
Of course when he told me that the best cookie he had ever had was made by someone else I immediately tried this technique and wanted to make his new favorite cookie.
The first step in making these chewy caramel chocolate chunk cookies is to preheat your oven to 375 then mix your butter and sugar with a mixer. I am luck enough to have my Kitchenaid to help with this but any hand mixer would do the job.
When combined your mixture will begin to look like frosting and if you try a little bit at this point, it will taste like it too.
Drop balls of cookie dough onto a pizza stone leaving space for them to expand in oven. Bake for 12 minutes then remove from oven to finish cooking on stone.
