Salted Caramel, Peanut Butter, Chocolate Chip Cookies Recipe

I love to bake when I’m home, and in a way it’s like therapy for me. When I pull out the kitchen aid and set my eggs into a bowl of warm water to bring them to room temperature, I’m reminded of all the times I helped my mom and Gram make cookies when I was young.

I’m also reminiscent of baking over the years with my own kiddos, too. They are such sweet memories for me! So, when I finally get to enjoy the first bite of a warm from the oven cookie…I feel so sweetly pleased to enjoy home baked cookies and all those unforgettable memories!

A few helpful tips for baking at higher elevations: 

  • If you live 3,000 feet above sea level or more, it is considered high elevation and may take longer to cook/bake. 
  • Adjustments are needed for 5000+ feet and above:
  • Reduce baking powder: for each teaspoon, decrease 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon.
  • Reduce sugar: for each cup, decrease 2 tablespoons.
  • Increase liquid: for each cup, add 2 to 4 tablespoons.
  • Increase oven temperature by 25 degrees F.
  • Check if it is done a little early.
  • This takes some trial and error to get it right for you.

    Hi – I started to make your salted caramel, peanut butter, chocolate chip cookies, but I see in the third step it calls for adding granulated sugar. Granulated sugar is not mentioned in the ingredients. How much do I add? Thanks again!
