  • ⅔ cup Unsalted Butter, softened
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 2 Eggs (yolks only)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour

Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add flour; beat at low speed until well mixed. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour or until firm.

  3. To make the caramel filling: Melt the caramel and heavy cream in the microwave stirring every 30 seconds until it is fully melted. Using a teaspoon fill each indentation with the caramel.
  4. To make the chocolate drizzle: Melt the chocolate in the microwave stirring 30 seconds at a time until smooth, and scoop into a ziplock bag. Barely snip the corner and drizzle over the cookies.
