Almond Joy Cookies

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by DbKnadler

I got this recipe a few years back, I don't remember exactly where. (Somewhere on the internet no doubt.) I love this cookie. The recipe makes a lot of them, so sometimes I halve it to make a few dozen less. EDIT: I just made these again and cut down the amount of flour so that the cookie spread out on the pan a bit and wasn't quite so dry. I liked them much better that way so I adjusted the recipe from 4 1/2 cups of flour to 3 cups of flour, leaving all remaining ingredients the same.

Yummy, Yummy, Yummy!!! I JUST made them, and brought them to a friend of a friend, who just gave me a chandaler for my old house!!! The guys loved them--I did what Theresa said, halved the recipe, except for the butter--and ADDED more almond taste by adding 1 tsp. of almond extract. (I used sliced almonds, cause I had them.) Now, I'm thinking of adding dried cherries! I looked at your recipes, because I , too, ate tomato marmalade and peanut butter sandwiches when I was young, took them to school, so the bread was totally soggy when lunch time came!!! My mom's homemade tomato marmalade! I also live in SE Michigan, near the St. Clair River. Keep up the sharing of the recipes, Thanks, again! :)
