  • Prep: 45 mins
  • Chill: 2 hrs
  • Bake: 10 mins 350°F per batch

Caramel Sandwich Cookies



  1. In a food processor combine sugar and salt. Cover and process until fine and powdery. Add pecans; cover and process until finely ground. Add butter and vanilla; cover and process with on/off pulses until the butter is smooth. Add flour; cover and process just until a soft dough begins to form around the blade. Remove dough from processor and knead briefly to evenly mix.
  2. Shape dough into a 12x2-1/2 inch rectangle. Wrap and chill rectangle about 2 hours or until dough is firm enough to slice.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cut rectangle into about 1/4-inch slices. Place slices 1 inch apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are golden, rotating pans from front to back about halfway through baking time. Cool on cookie sheets for 1 minute. Transfer cookies to wire racks; cool.
  4. Spread Shortcut Caramel Filling onto the bottom sides of half of the cookies. Top with the remaining cookies, bottom sides down, to make sandwiches.
  5. In a medium microwave-safe bowl microwave white baking chocolate, uncovered, on 100 percent power (high) for 1 to 1-1/2 minutes or until chocolate melts, stirring every 30 seconds. Dip one end of each sandwich cookie into melted chocolate. Place cookies on waxed paper. Let stand until chocolate is set.
