I’m so happy because this month out wonderful host choose one of my favorite ingredients delicious soft, chewy, sweet Caramel.
It is in all forms the most versatile and perfect ingredient for a delicious cookie specially when we add coconut and nuts.
This cookies are just perfect with a cold glass of milk or a cup of tea, crunchy not to sweet but with enough caramel flavor to satisfy a demanding audience.
