    • 1 egg
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
    • 2 cups flour
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 3 cups coconut, toasted
    • 1 package caramels (14-ounce pkg)
    • 1/4 teaspoon salt
    • 3 tablespoons milk
    • 10 ounces semi-sweet chocolate
    Directions
    Preheat oven to 350°F. For the cookie base: Line a 9x13 inch baking pan with aluminum foil and spray it lightly with cooking spray.

    In a large bowl, cream together sugar and butter until fluffy.

    Beat in egg and vanilla extract.

    Working at a low speed, gradually beat in flour and salt until mixture is crumbly, like wet sand.

    Pour crumbly dough into prepared pan and press into an even layer.

    Bake for 20-25 minutes, until base is set and edges are lightly browned. Cool completely on a wire rack.

    For the topping, unwrap the caramels and place in a large microwave-safe bowl with milk and salt. Microwave on high for 3-4 minutes, stopping to stir a few times to help the caramel melt.

    When smooth, fold in toasted coconut with a spatula.

    Put spoonfuls of the topping all over the shortbread base. Using a spatula, spread the topping in an even layer. Let topping set until cooled.

    When cooled, cut into 30 bars with a large knife or a pizza cutter.

    Once bars are cut, melt chocolate in a small bowl. Heat it on high in the microwave in 45-second intervals, stirring thoroughly to prevent scorching. Dip the base of each bar into the chocolate and place on a clean piece of wax paper.

    If desired, use remaining chocolate to drizzle bars with chocolate to finish.

    Let chocolate set completely before storing in an airtight container.

    Grilled Pizza Recipe

    Submitted by RecipeTips.com
    Pizza on the grill, good any time, is a summertime delight, with garden-fresh toppings and no need to heat up the oven.
    Grilled Pizza Recipe
    PREP: 5 minutes
    COOK: 10 minutes
    READY IN: 2 hours
    Container: grill, gas or charcoal, and ideally a food processor
    Serving Description: varies
    Ingredients
    • 1 cup warm water
    • 1 teaspoon sugar
    • 1 teaspoon dry yeast
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil, more as needed
    • 2 cups flour, preferably bread flour, plus more as needed
    • 1/3 cup corn meal
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1 teaspoon crumbled dried herbs or garlic powder, optional
    Directions
    • Dissolve sugar in warm water and sprinkle yeast on top.  (If using instant yeast, add it to the dry ingredients.)  Let stand until yeast is foamy, about 10 minutes.
    • In food processor (use steel blade) combine flour, corn meal, and salt, plus dried herbs or garlic powder, if using.  Pulse to blend.
    • Add olive oil to the yeast liquid, stir well to get any yeast that may have settled to the bottom, and with the machine running, add to the dry ingredients.  Pulse until well mixed, and dough forms a sticky ball.  If dough is too wet to form a ball, add more flour a tablespoon or two at a time; if it's so dry that it's not sticky, add more water a tablespoon at a time.  Pulse briefly after each addition.
    • Scrape dough out onto lightly floured surface and knead into a ball.  Cover with a damp cloth or plastic wrap and let rise until doubled.  This will take about an hour in a warm place (see TIP) or longer at room temperature.
    • When ready to cook, have prepared toppings at hand.  Heat grill or start charcoal.  Briefly knead the dough, cut into desired number of pieces, and shape into balls.  This amount of dough will make four 9-10 inch, six 7-8 inch, or eight 6 inch crusts.  On a floured surface, roll the balls to about 1/8 inch thick, as even in thickness as possible.  Spread out flat or stack between sheets of parchment paper or flour-dusted waxed paper.
    • When grill is ready, lightly brush one side of crust with olive oil and grill, oiled side down until firm and a bit browned, several minutes.  Turn, quickly add toppings, cover grill, and cook until crust is crisp; this may take from 2-6 minutes depending on grill temperature and crust thickness.  Watch closely to prevent burning.
    • Serve immediately.
    • TIP: to make a warm place to speed dough rising, microwave a large glass of water for 2 minutes.  Leave the glass in the microwave and put in the covered bowl of dough.  To make dough a day ahead, cover and refrigerate.  Bring to room temperature before forming crusts.

    Preheat oven to 350°. Spray 12 muffin cups with cooking spray.

    For filling, combine peaches, sugar, cinnamon and salt until combined.
