Serves 78 servings | Prep Time 25 minutes + chilling | Cook Time 15 min./batch


1 cup butter, softened
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1 teaspoon maple flavoring
2-3/4 cups all-purpose flour

30 caramels
2 packages (3 ounces each) cream cheese, softened

In a large bowl, cream the butter, cream cheese and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and maple flavoring. Gradually add flour and mix well. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until easy to handle.

In a microwave-safe bowl, melt caramels; stir until smooth. Stir in cream cheese until blended; set aside. Divide dough in half. Roll each portion between waxed paper to 1/4-in. thickness. Spread caramel mixture over dough to within 1/2 in. of edges.

Roll up tightly jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Wrap rolls in plastic wrap; refrigerate for 4 hours or until firm.

Unwrap and cut into 1/4-in. slices. Place 1 in. apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 12-14 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.

In my opinion, cookies are the best dessert to make and to eat! With a crisp outside and chewy caramel filling, these are definitely one of my favorites.
