Mix up cookie dough adding flour until just not sticky, form balls, place on cookie sheet atop parchment paper. It does work well to keep them from sticking after baking. Bake at 350, 10-12 minutes until bottoms are lightly browned.
Cool cookies swirl melted caramel atop and cool again. Melt chocolate chips with shortening in microwave stirring often. Swirl over cooled cookies.
