  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 1/2 cups white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons cream of tartar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon coarse sea salt for topping

White Chocolate Caramel Sauce

  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 2 cup brown sugar
  • 4 tablespoons white granulated sugar
  • 1 cup half & half
  • 2 tablespoons vanilla
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup white chocolate melting candies



  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
  • Combine the 2 tablespoons sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Cream together butter, shortening, sugar, eggs, and vanilla in a mixing bowl or a stand mixer. 
  • Stir in flour, cream of tartar, baking soda, and salt.
  • Spoon dough with a tablespoon or cookie dough scoop and roll into a ball. 
  • Roll ball in the sugar and cinnamon mixture, then place each cookie 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets.
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until set.
  • Remove from baking sheets immediately and place on cooling rack. While cooling, make the caramel sauce.

White Chocolate Caramel Sauce

  • Add all ingredients except for the white chocolate in a medium sauce pan over medium-low heat. 
  • Cook for about 5-7 minutes while constantly whisking, until it starts to thicken. 
  • Remove from heat and whisk in white chocolate until completely combined. Let the sauce cool for 5 minutes.
  • Spread caramel on top of each cookie. This is easiest to do while the sauce is still slightly warm, but not hot.
  • Once all of the cookies are topped with caramel, sprinkle a pinch of sea salt on each cookie.
  • Serve immediately or let the caramel set before stacking or storing cookies. Enjoy!
