I’ve been craving cookies lately, and I realized that it has been awhile since I made any for the blog. I spent a good half hour on Pinterest searching for inspiration and finally decided on a chocolate coconut flavor combination. Wanting to add an additional element, I decided some sugar free caramel would be a good choice. If you don’t like coconut, that could be omitted from these cookies.
The shortbread crusts of these cookies are amazing. The texture is every so slightly chewy and dense, and the flavor is mellow enough to allow the toppings to take center stage. Oh, and the caramel– these low carb cookies are made with a stovetop cream caramel that firms up nicely at room temperature. All in all, this is easily one of my favorite cookie recipes I’ve ever made. Hands down.
