Let's Make It
1
Blend nuts in blender until finely ground; set aside. Beat butter and sugar in large bowl with mixer until light and fluffy. Add nuts, eggs and lemon zest; mix well. Gradually add flour, kneading in with hands until well blended. Refrigerate 1 hour.
2
Heat oven to 350°F. Roll out dough on lightly floured surface to 1/4-inch thickness. Cut into 72 rounds with 2-inch cookie cutter, rerolling scraps as necessary. Place, 2 inches apart, on baking sheets sprayed with cooking spray.
3
Bake 15 min. or until lightly browned. Cool 3 min. on baking sheets. Remove to wire racks; cool completely.
4
Cook caramels and milk in saucepan on medium heat 5 to 7 min. or until caramels are completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring constantly. Spread onto half the cookies, using about 1 tsp. for each. Top each with second cookie to make sandwich. Roll sides in coconut. Let stand until caramel filling is firm.
