- 2 cups water
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 3 tablespoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons cornstarch
- 3 tablespoons water
So, the above ^ is a recipe from AllRecipes.com. Or, it’s really just the ingredients. It is a CARAMEL recipe. Last time I checked, water was not one of the prime ingredients in major caramel retailers’ products.
Yeah… Wow. I sure look obsessive. Eeek! Please forgive my harshness. I’m a little intense…
I absolutely love this recipe I just got off of Allrecipes.com. (That website is brilliant.)
But I don’t like cooking with eggs, so instead of one egg, I’ll use this: 1-1/2 T. water + 1-1/2 T. vegetable oil + 1/2 t. baking powder. It binds, bakes, and works just the same as a traditional egg in a recipe, maybe better.

2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). In a small bowl, stir together flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and place onto ungreased cookie sheets.
- Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.
