Vanilla Bean Caramel Thumbprint Cookies: Vanilla bean shortbread style cookies filled with a homemade vanilla bean caramel sauce. Not your average thumbprint cookie.
It’s not a sponsored post, we just do it for fun…you know how we used to do blogging.
The first year there were only 12 of us.
Rodelle did not have that many ambassadors, in fact, I was their second ever.
But it goes to show you how much I like their product if I have been with them for that long. 🙂
However, the number of Rodelle ambassadors have grown immensely over the years and so has the event.
Traditionally I tend to make cookies using their cocoa powder but this year I was really craving vanilla bean caramels.
Decided that needed to be in a cookie.
While I really love a classic thumbprint cookie…I don’t tend to stick to the classics on this blog.
I’ve made Red Velvet Thumbprints.
And now I have made these Vanilla Bean Caramel Thumbprint Cookies.
The base of the cookie is essentially shortbread.
You can take the time to make them perfectly round if you want.
But once you smash your thumb or tsp. in there they tend to break a little on the sides.
If they break too much piece them together as you do want to be able to hold the caramel in there.
They just don’t have to be perfect. 🙂
The vanilla bean caramel is what makes these.
These cookies use Rodelle vanilla, vanilla beans, and their vanilla bean paste.
So very vanilla.
So very yummy.
I did add some sea salt flakes to the top of some of them but you don’t have to.
