  • In a medium bowl, use a fork or a whisk to blend together the flour, baking powder, salt and unsweetened cocoa. Next, in a mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar alternative until creamy. Then add the egg and the vanilla extract. Lastly, mix in the dry ingredients from the first bowl, adding half at a time and mixing between additions. Mix until just blended.

  • Preheat the oven to 325 and prep two baking sheets for nonstick. Use a cookie scoop to scoop the first cookie, roll the cookie out between your hands and then press the cookie into the cookie sheets to about ¾ of the way in. Use your thumb, the backside of a melon baller, or a similar object to form the indent in the center of the cookie that will be used to hold the caramel. Continue this procedure for the remaining cookies.

  • Bake the cookies for 12-14 minutes or until the sides seem to be mostly set. Remove the cookies from the oven and repeat the step of making the indent in the center of each cookie to reinforce the one that you made before baking while the cookies are still warm. Then allow the cookies to fully cool on a rack before filling with the caramel sauce.
