  • Heat oven to 350ºF.
  • Process Easy Homemade Pie Dough and 1/4 cup sugar in food processor 30 sec. or until mixture is well blended and starts to form ball. Divide dough in half. Roll each half into ball; flatten into disk.
  • Roll out 1 disk on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into 8 rounds with 2-inch cookie cutter, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place, 1 inch apart, on parchment-covered baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.
  • Bake 13 to 15 min. or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 1 min. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
  • Microwave caramels and milk in microwaveable bowl on HIGH 30 sec. to 1 min. or until caramels are completely melted and sauce is well blended, stirring after 30 sec. Stir in cinnamon.
  • Spread caramel sauce onto flat sides of 16 cookies, adding about 1 tsp. caramel sauce to each cookie. Cover with remaining cookies, flat sides down, to make 16 sandwiches. Place on wire rack; sprinkle with remaining sugar.

Size Wise

Balance out your food choices throughout the day so you can enjoy one of these delicious sandwich cookies.


If caramel sauce becomes too firm to easily spread onto the cookies, reheat in the microwave on HIGH 5 sec. or just until soft enough to use as directed.
