Brown Butter Oatmeal Cookies Filled With Caramel and Peanut Butter


Sometimes I throw something together in the kitchen that turns out amazing. A drop what you are doing and come check these out type of recipe. That's what these cookies are. Please drop what you are doing concentrate on these photos, wipe the drool from your chin and go whip up a batch. These cookies deserve your undivided attention.


Are you drooling yet?


Brown butter oatmeal cookies are one of my favorite go to cookies, but when filled with chewy caramels and then topped off with a dollop of peanut butter... there are just no words that do them justice.


Also... can we all agree cookies are meant to be eaten warm? If you eat these cookies cold or at room temperature you will not understand that full greatness of the ooey gooey caramel and peanut butter.


If you find that you can not eat all of these cookies right away. Store them in an air tight container and when the time comes and you want to eat one... microwave it for 10 seconds.  If you do not do this step. Beware. Caramel hardens and will pull any fillings you have out if you are not careful.


What I love most about these cookies, is that they are made in one bowl, are easy to whip up. Push some caramel candies in the center, dollop with peanut butter, bake, then enjoy piping hot with a gallon of cold milk.





Brown Butter Oatmeal Cookies Filled With Caramel and Peanut Butter
  
Ingredients:
1/2 cup  butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 cups old fashioned oats
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
12 caramels ( I use kraft)
12 tsp peanut butter

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350.

In a small sauce pan melt butter on medium/low heat until it has become a golded brown color and spells kind of nutty or toffee like. Remove from heat.

In a medium bowl mix both sugars, egg and vanilla together. After that is combinded mix in your browned butter.

Mix in your, oats, flour, salt and baking powder. Once your dough has come together refriderate for 20 minutes.

Once the dough has chilled a bit, remove from refrigerator and roll into 12 equal sized balls. Place each cookie dough ball on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet about 2 inches a part.

Push a carmel sqaure into the center of each cookie dough ball. You can form the sides of the cookies a bit if you want to cover the caramel more.

Dollop a tsp of peanut butter on the top of each caramel.

Bake for 12-14 minutes or until the cookies are golden.

Allow to cool for about 15 minutes then enjoy. Store in an air tight container and heat up in the microwave for about 10 seconds to enjoy them again!

    1. SO glad you liked them Susan! Sorry I am not sure what pie you are thinking of. You might want to try googling it or maybe even search Pinterest.

    2. Susan, I make a cream cheese pie with crushed pineapple- 1 can crushed pineapple, 1 block of CC, 1 container cool whip & 1/2c sugar
      Blend CC and sugar till smooth- fold in cool whip then pineapple. Spread in graham crust and freeze till firm. I would assume you could just swap the koolaid for the pineapple or add for color with fave fruit.

      Delete
    3. Susan, I make a CC pie that maybe you could use for your kool aide one. 1 block Cream Cheese, 1 can crushed pineapple, 1 container of cool whip and calls for 1c of sugar- (we omit sugar). Blend CC and sugar if using then fold in pineapple and then fold in cool whip. Pour into graham crust and freeze till just firm. You could sub the pineapple for koolaide powder or just blend fave fruit and same koolaide flavor for pretty colored pie.

  30. I now wear a larger pant size just by looking at these pictures.
    Will have to add larger jeans to shopping list for these AMAZING temptations.

  31. Unreal, all but one comment are from people who thought the cookies "Looked" delicious. I look at reviews to get input on how other people liked or disliked the recipe AFTER trying them, not just looking at the pictures. Not helpful at all guys!

    1. This isn't a recipe review website, it is a food blog where I correspond with my friends and followers about things I've made in my home kitchen and the photographed to share. I have had many rave about this cookie through email, pinterest and facebook. Unfortunately many people who make recipes on blogs like mine do not know how to leave comments to "review" it. I can assure you I love this cookie as do many others.

  32. can you use quick oatmeal with these and how do you think a Hershey kiss instead of peanut butter would work?

  33. Stephie included these on her cookie roundup and I'm glad she did! Since it only makes 12 cookies, I don't see the problem in eating them fresh from the oven. :)

  34. Just made these gorgeous cookies. Took exactly 30 minutes to prep (including the 20 in the fridge) - super easy and SO delicious. Can be done by hand, which is a bonus when you're short on time. Only issue is finding caramels in England...

    3. Did use a ice cream scooper to get the 12 cookies? I may just use the mini caramels and use the scooper I have.

    1. It can be omitted or you can use something like Biscoff Spread, or any other nut butter.

    2. I would think a Hershey's kiss would be good if allergic to nuts.

    3. I'm thinking a dollop of nutella would be a great alternative! Even without a peanut allergy that would be yummy!!

  38. Since I don't much care for oatmeal in my cookies can I use a chocolate chip recipe and still put the caramel and peanut butter? Or can I just omit the oatmeal?

    1. Unfortunately this is an oatmeal cookie, it would not work if you just omit it. However you could def. try a chocolate chip cookie and stuff them with caramels and pb!

  41. Hi Carrie! What kind of caramel squares did you use? I imagine you bought them in soft candy form?

    ReplyDelete

    1. I use soft caramels. Any brand like Kraft would work.

  42. Carrie, I did not have caramel cubes, but I did have Caramel Dip.
    So, I substituted, I made a center crater with my tsp in each cookie, and filled with the Caramel Dip, and then covered with the P.B.
    They turned out pretty good, and the cold cookies, was a treat to eat, because the dip doesn't get extremely hard like the cubes.
    Just thought that I would share. ;o)

  53. I have made these several times now and they are very yummy. It seems though that the butter called for isn't nearly enough. When I just use one stick they are dry and crumbly. To make them moist and delicious I have to double the butter. I also found that browning butter on low heat almost doesn't work and need to crank it up to medium. Incredible though!

    ReplyDelete
  54. The brown butter is just amazing in these. I used fleur de sal and double it. Also powder vanilla instead of extract and instead of the caramels I used leftover homemade caramel sauce,mix it with the peanut butter and cooled it in the freezer while the dough was in the fridge. They came out amazing. The flavor truly inspired me. Thank you very much! Best wishes to you and your blog.
