Yes, it’s true, I can be a cookie monster at times. When I lived in Savannah the neighborhood children used to call me the “Cookie Lady!” I was more of a cookie baker than a cake baker, but since moving to Pensacola 7 years ago, I seem to be baking more cakes and cupcakes, but, I still love to bake cookies, especially for Christmas. I love to bake and give Christmas cookies to my family, friends and co-workers. I have lots of Christmas cookies posted, so you may want to check them out for the upcoming holiday season.
This is a new cookie recipe I tried recently and I’ll be making these again for sure. I love the oatmeal toffee combination, chewy, crunchy and soft all mixed together. I do recommend you trying this recipe, it’s a keeper for sure, and not that hard to make. I also love the coconut in the cookie, and the cinnamon, but you can omit the coconut if you’re not a coconut lover. I think if you had this cookie, you would not even realize coconut is even in the recipe. I hope you enjoy this cookie as much as I do.
