These vegan snickerdoodles are sure to get everyone's attention when seeking soft and thick snickerdoodles stuffed with creamy caramels . How could anyone resist these gooey, chewy bites of caramel and cinnamon cookie love? Such a sweet surprise inside!
The dough will be quite thick and not too wet or dry and roll the dough in balls or use a medium cookie scoop, about 2 tablespoons.
Flatten each ball of dough with the palm of your hand. Place a caramel in the middle of your cookie dough ball and fold dough around it to make the perfect circle dough ball. If you caramels are large, cut them in half for use. Make sure there are no gaps in the cookie dough when you place each ball into cinnamonsugar.
Place on baking sheets and bake for 11 minutes. The cookies will be very soft. Let them cool for about 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
Transfer to sealed container. Will keep up to one week, do not refrigerate.
If the dough is crumbly, add a tablespoon or two of non-dairy milk. If too wet for some reason, add a tablespoon of flour. This is a good way to troubleshoot any cookie recipe.If caramels are warm or super soft, put them in the fridge for 15 minutes or so to firm them up a bit. If you don't want to add the caramels, just omit them for straight up snickerdoodles. :)For non-vegan version, replace vegan butter with butter, applesauce/flaxseed for 1 egg and vegan caramels for Kraft caramels or something similar.
