You know what I love about the Thermomix? Well actually there's about a zillion things I love... but one of the major ones is just how quick and easy it is to convert all of my old favourite recipes. And long gone are the days of having beaters, bowls, whisks, measuring cups and every other possible kitchen appliance being used every time I wanted to bake. Now it's just me and my thermie. Happy times!
Anyway, these Thermomix Caramel Cookies are based on a four ingredient recipe that I've been using forever. In fact, it's one of those recipes that you just know off the top of your head! They're the biscuits I make when I'm in a rush, because I always have the ingredients on hand (well almost always!).
These really are the best little caramel cookies on their own... or you can add in some chocolate chips, nuts or whatever you like!
