Chocolate Cookies with Dried Cherry Tomatoes

Yummy Bakes | 1:27 PM |
I have so many to bakes on my list but Ann told me "die-die must try this cookies" so I have to let this cookies take precedence.  The combination of dessicated coconut and cocoa powder gave a very nice aroma that filled the kitchen when it was baking in the oven.
