I made these cookies for a good friend of mine. On a recent trip to Florida she found these delectable Calypso cookies at Publix Bakery which is a popular chain in the South. They are oatmeal based with coconut and pecans. She wanted to recreate these cookies and asked if I would give it a try. After researching online I found many copycat recipes with which to work with. Now I have to say I’m not really a coconut person and usually avoid it but after trying these cookies I was pleasantly surprised. The flavors are well balanced without the strong coconut flavor that usually overwhelms me. I think they taste pretty close to the original Publix cookies. Let me know what you think!

My husband Joe is a cookie monster! He loves all cookies, but especially ones that have a contrast between sweet and salty. These snickerdoodles are very soft and gooey with melting caramel bits, rolled in cinnamon and sugar and lightly sprinkled with grey sea salt. Made with brown butter gives off a nutty aroma as well as a taste that is hard to describe other than heavenly. Beware the addiction that follows after taking your first bite. It’s hard to resist just one more!

I’ve been craving cookies, maybe more like I crave baking cookies. The kitchen is my sanctuary on cold winter days with the oven warming and the aroma of fresh cookies baking. And what’s better than a warm cookie and a glass of milk to lift your spirits. I decided I’d just go with what I could find in the pantry since I didn’t want to go to the store. When I spotted the oats, my decision was made . . . Oatmeal Cookies.
