These delicious cookies are from Life love and sugar, and they are delicious! They are crunchy, caramel flavoured wafers. For once I didn't change the recipe, I didn't add more of this or less of that. Shocking I know...

They come together so easily, and when stored in an air-tight container last for up to five days on the counter. Even my hard-to-please dad likes these, they remind him of his favourite candies - Werthers. 


  • 6 tbsp (84g) unsalted butter 
  • 2/3 cup (150g) packed brown sugar 
  • 2 tbsp milk 
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract 
  • 1/3 cup (43g) all-purpose flour 
  • 1/2 cup (50g) almond flour 
  • 1/4 tsp salt 


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and line a cookie sheet with parchment paper or silicone baking mats. This is absolutely necessary. If you don't they will stick!
  2. In a medium-sized saucepan, combine butter, brown sugar and milk. Cook over low heat, stirring regularly, until butter and sugar have melted.
  3. Once butter and sugar are melted, turn heat up to medium and cook mixture just until it begins to boil.
  4. Remove from heat and add vanilla extract, flours and salt, stirring until completely combined.
  5. Allow to cool for about 5 minutes, then drop by 1 1/2 teaspoons (half a tablespoon) onto prepared cookie sheet. Space cookies about 2-3 inches apart. The cookies will spread quite a bit in the oven. Do not place too close together or you will get a sheet of cookie. Be warned! The cookie dough mixture will thicken as it cools, but that won’t affect the outcome of the cookies.
  6. Bake for 7-10 minutes, or until the cookies are golden in colour. Keep an eye on them towards the end of baking because they can burn quickly.
  7. Allow cookies to cool for 3-4 minutes or until they are firm enough to move, then transfer to a cooling rack to finish cooling.
