Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Cookies (Alabama)

I can think of few things more delicious than a warm batch of freshly baked peanut butter cookies. Many credit George Washington Carver (an Alabama native) as being the “inventor” of modern day peanut butter. So I did a little mixing and combining of a few of my favorite flavors and came up with a real treat that has sweet home Alabama written ALL over it! Peanuts may be king here, but these Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Cookies are certainly a treat of royal standards!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Using a stand mixer, cream together the butter, peanut butter and sugars While mixing, add in eggs one at a time.
  3. Add in vanilla, baking soda and corn starch. Add in caramel pieces and peanut halves.
  4. Slowly add in flour - making sure it gets fully incorporated into the dough Scoop a spoon full of dough into your hands and roll into a ball - making sure no caramel pieces are visible. You can gently flatten the dough a little with your palm if you like a flatter cookie.
  5. Place each ball on a foil lined greased cookie sheet and sprinkle with just a pinch of sea salt.
  6. Bake for 10-12 minutes (Note: Caramel WILL ooze out - don't be alarmed). Allow to cool on pan for no longer than a minute or two before transferring to a wire rack to finish cooling (Any excess caramel that oozed out should easily break off at this time). Serve with a glass of milk and enjoy!
