Welcome back to Christmas Cookies Week! Today I am sharing my recipe for Salted Caramel Oatmeal Cookies, which take one of my traditional favorite cookies: oatmeal raisin, and give it a festive twist by changing the add-ins to caramel with a pinch of sea salt.
The resulting taste is very caramel, with all the chewiness you’d expect in an oatmeal cookie. The little bit of sea salt really brings out the caramel tones.

And I wind down the week on Friday with my recipe for Black Forest Brownies, which are terrifically easy. Also, be sure to join in other blogs on Saturday for the last day, although I won’t be posting then. You can search the recipes with the hashtag #ChristmasCookies on social media.
