If you are looking for a crispy and chewy Christmas cookie, then you need to bake a batch of chocolate chip sea salt caramel cookies – pronto! I have enjoyed the Pillsbury Funfetti Cookie mix, so I decided to make the Pillsbury Gluten Free Chocolate Chip cookie mix and add some Hershey’s Sea Salt Caramel chips. Turns out, these cookies are some of the best gluten free cookies I have made and by far the easiest.
Here’s what you will need:
- 1 Box Pillsbury Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Premium Cookie Mix
- 1 Egg
- 1 Stick Butter
- 1 Tablespoon Water
- 1/4 cup Hershey’s Sea Salt Caramel Chips
Mix the cookie mix, egg, softened butter and water together until you have an amazing ball of cookie dough. I love using my Kitchen Aid Mixer for mixing up cookie dough because it mixes well and it’s a job I can have my young daughter help with. Add in the Seal Salt Caramel Chips and mix it for a few more seconds.
Pull out your favorite cookie sheet – I used an aluminum baking sheet and two Teflon cake pans. Drop a teaspoonful of cookie dough onto the cookie sheet and use your fingers to make each spoonful round. It took me years to learn that the cookies will bake in the shape they start out as in the pan. Leave a little over an inch between cookies and bake them at 375 for 8 – 10 minutes. The cookies are done when they are slightly browned on the top, but don’t over bake them unless you like crunchy cookies.
My cookie testers (aka my hubby and brother-in-law) loved the cookies and would not have known they were gluten free unless I told them. The Sea Salt Caramel chips add a touch of sweet caramel that compliments the chocolate nicely.
