tsp salt

14 caramel cubes

Chill dough at least 1 hour or until firm enough to handle.

Place 1 inch apart and press a thumb print gently into the centre of each ball. Bake 10-12 minutes. While cookies bake, prepare caramel filling.

Re-press the thumb print, then immediately put caramel filling into the centre of the cookie. Move to wire racks to cool.
