National Caramel Day

I had the pleasure of collaborating with Mary Remy in celebration of #NationalCaramelDay and it was so much fun! She is a busy bee making cookies to sell at Piper's as well as Midtown Market (if you're looking to snag a bite of these cookies, check out Piper's!). 

To get a glimpse of what all Mary is whisking up, check out her Instagram (@littlefeastie). Your waistline has been warned! ;) If you'd like to reach out to her about ordering customized (small batch) cookies, send her an email at mary@maryremy.com.

Mary was kind enough to share with us her recipe for homemade caramel. If you're a baker yourself (or just love to try out new recipes) make sure to give this a go!

Makes about 1 1/2 cups

1 cups granulated sugar 
6 tbsp butter
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tsp vanilla extract 

  1. In a medium size pot, heat granulated sugar over medium-medium high heat until it melts and turns a dark amber color. Stir consistently so the sugar does not burn. It will start to form large clumps before it melts completely. 
  2. Once melted, add butter and stir until melted and incorporated into the sugar. 
  3. Slowly pour in heavy cream and vanilla, stirring constantly. 
  4. Keep pot over heat for another 30 seconds before turning off the burner. Let caramel cool slightly before pouring into a glass bowl or ball jar. 
  5. Once cooled, caramel will hold its shape at room temperature but is still soft.  Put in the microwave for 30 seconds to soften, and drizzle over ice cream, cakes or brownies. Enjoy!
Thank you again to Mary as well as Broadway Interiors for allowing us to use your space. We're all about #ShopLocal here in Paducah and I encourage you to get out there and try a cookie (or two) of "Little Feastie". I assure you that you will not be disappointed!

Thanks for stopping by! 
I hope you have a great Tuesday and a yummy #NationalCaramelDay :)
