Caramel Apple Nut Cookies

Lynn Socko


This cookie is perfect for the Fall and it's also great as a breakfast cookie or a mid morning snack. It's not too sweet, you get a bite of apple, a little crunch from that breakfast bar coating, and a sweet and salty finish with that yummy caramel and coarse sea salt.
