I am not eating sugar this week. Well, I haven’t caved in yet:) So far, so good! I just need a week to detox a little. I am still eating fruit, but no desserts and that means no cookies. Gasp! I don’t think I have ever gone a week without eating a cookie!
Well, just because I am off sugar doesn’t mean that you have to feel deprived. I am going to live vicariously through all of you because you are going to be eating Brown Butter Salted Caramel Snickerdoodles. I made these cookies a few weeks ago and I think I ate the entire batch. Hence, the need for a sugar detox:) These cookies were so worth the cookie binge! I LOVE them and I think you will too!
I decided it was time to take the snickerdoodle to another level by adding caramel and sea salt. Oh, yes I did!
That GREAT snickerdoodle just got transformed into a cookie that is off the charts. Brown Butter Salted Caramel Snickerdoodles are irresistible. That is why you are making them this week and not me. I can’t say no to these cookies:)
The cookies are soft with a nutty brown butter flavor. When you bite into a cookie you will be pleasantly surprised by the sweet gooey caramel. I love salted caramel so I increased the salt in the recipe and added a sprinkle of sea salt to the tops of every cookie. Salted caramel, meet brown butter snickerdoodle-love at first sight!
The classic cinnamon sugar mixture is the perfect finish to the cookies. Aren’t they purty?
I am seriously craving a Brown Butter Salted Caramel Snickerdoodle right now. I really wish I could reach into my computer screen and grab one. I know, stay strong, stay strong!
Please eat a cookie for me! And if you bake a batch of Brown Butter Salted Caramel Snickerdoodles and happen to be driving by our house, maybe you can sneak a cookie under our front door. I will save it until next week when I am back on sugar. I promise. Wink, wink:)

For Rolling the Cookies:
