Crunchy coconut, creamy caramel. A delicious cookie. A recipe you should really bake yourself.
When I was looking in the Martha Stewart living, I saw this recipe for coconut cookies with caramel. They looked at me and I knew I was going to bake these. So I started out the recipe and now I'm convinced: They are delicious.
I adapted the recipe slightly, make it even more simple and less messy and I share it with you
