Introduction: Coffee Toffee Cookies*
Hello! My name is Carter and it is my first time using Instructables. I found these cookies off the web, and they looked like a very fun and easy cookie to bake, and they were! These cookies are very sweet and caramelly, so if you have a sweet tooth these cookies are for you! I have baked a lot of things in the past like cookies, muffins, and cakes. My dad is in the business of cooking and that's what inspired me to bake. Along the way, I have learned many tips and tricks from family and friends that have helped me become a better baker and person. I hope you enjoy! :)
