(Recipe) Caramel Cookies

Here is a recipe for caramel cookies that requires only four ingredients. The ingredients are simple and the process is easy, as no sugar is used and the caramel snack sold at Maido that we mentioned earlier in this newsletter is used.

These cookies have a crunchy, crispy, relatively hard texture as if the caramel was made directly into cookies and the strong flavor of the caramel is so delicious that you will not be able to stop eating. They are addictive cookies that you will want to make again soon, even though you will regret making them for a moment because you will end up eating too many of them.

Because they are such delicious cookies, they make the perfect White Day return gift. Even if they are not a gift, you can of course by all means make and enjoy them yourself. We hope that caramel lovers will give them a try!

Ingredients (about 16 cookies):

2.1 oz./60 g commercial caramel

2 tbsp of milk

1.7 oz./50 g of butter

3.5 oz./100 g of flour


1. Put the caramel and milk in a heatproof container/bowl and heat in a microwave oven (1000w) for about 1 minute.

2. Mix well to dissolve, and let stand for 5 minutes to remove from the heat.

3. Add the finely chopped butter and sifted flour to what you made in step 2, and mix with a rubber spatula in a cutting motion into a single lump without kneading. (The caramel is a little warm, so it will gradually blend.)

4. Wrap in plastic wrap, form into bars, and refrigerate in the freezer for 15-20 minutes.

5. Cut into 0.2"/5 mm pieces and place on a parchment sheet lined pan.

6. Bake in a preheated oven (340 °F/170 °C) for 13-15 minutes. Enjoy!


  • In step 3, cut the butter into small pieces before adding it, as it is difficult to mix if you add it in lumps! It is good timing if you prepare it with flour while taking off the heat in step 1.

  • Since the texture is crunchy and hard, it tastes better if it is cut into thin strips in step 5.
