This recipe was entered in The Foodista Best of Food Blogs Cookbook contest, a compilation of the world’s best food blogs which was published in Fall 2010.


6 ounces Butter, softened
1/4 cup Powdered Sugar, sifted
2 teaspoons Vanilla Bean Paste (or 1 tsp Vanilla Extract)
1 cup AP Flour, sifted
1/4 cup Cornstarch
3 1/2 ounces Butter
2 tablespoons Golden Syrup


Preheat oven to 350 degrees
Place the butter, powdered sugar and vanilla in a bowl and beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy.
Stir in the sifted flour and cornstarch until combined.
Place the mixture in a piping bag fitted with a fluted tip. Pipe 1in rounds onto a baking sheet linded with parchment paper, allowing room to spread.
Bake for 12 - 14 minutes or until golden. Cool on a tray (not on a rack, that will make it hard to pick up the delicate cookie).
Place all ingredients in a sauce pan and turn on very low heat.
Stir for 25-30 minutes or until thick and pale golden. Allow to cool. Eat with a big spoon.

They sound wonderful!


The cookies are soft and tender and they literally melt away in your mouth. They are very delicate though, which is why you don't want to place them on a cooling rack. You also have to pipe the filling on them, if you try to spread it you will end up with a bunch of crumbs. A bunch of delicious crumbs.

The caramel went really well with the cookie. It tastes just like those little packaged caramels, but much softer and better. I piped the caramel on the cookie and it was perfect. It would also be great on cupcakes, cakes, pies, or even with apples.
