      What delightful cookies!! They came together well and were really easy to make. (I hope you don't mind but used what I had available in the cupboard...Made these with pecans instead of almonds. Also used dark choclate instead of white.) The chocolate dip and coconut topping make these really festive. I gave out the recipe to four ladies at the cookie swap at work. Will be making these again for our family Christmas Eve gathering. =) Thanks for posting!
