Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and then press in the caramel.

This was a bummer – I forgot to buy caramels for this recipe, but I improvised and use the caramel balls I had from the stuffed caramel cookies I made on day 3 of the 12 days of cookies celebration. It worked, but these cookies are far better looking with real caramel candies.

Bake at 350 degrees for 13 minutes. Then let cool a bit and eat up.
