Oh my...you guys! These are SO good! I'm telling you! So. Good. Sugar cookies are one of my favorites and also caramel and also salted caramel so tweaking my recipe a little tiny bit made for a great little cookie! They are so tender but the caramel bits inside make them so yummy!! As soon as we polished off this batch, IT Guy asked when we'd (and by WE he meant ME) be making these again. You definitely want to put these on your "to make" list for the holidays.

Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!
