They were good, but basically a chocolate chip cookie with almond and a little bit of coconut. I saw other reviews saying to use coconut extract instead of vanilla but I didn't have any. Maybe that would have given some more coconut flavor and would have been more "Almond Joy" like. <br/><br/>I made a whole batch which says 5-6 dozen, but I ended up with about 150 cookies!!! Maybe I made them a little smaller, but holy cow! I didn't make them THAT small!
Well worth the work. The cookies are just great! If you love Almond Joy candy bars you will love these cookies too!
These are quite good! It was a bit challenging to get all the "stuff" (coconut, almonds, chocolate) mixed into the dough. I baked each batch for 12 minutes and ended up with a really crunchy cookie. I like how the recipe is easily halved. I made a half-batch and still ended up with 5 1/2 dozen good-sized cookies.
I made these for the cookie lovers at work and every one is BEGGING me to make them agian! A++++++ cookie!
These were very good cookies. I made the whole batch and got almost 8 dozen cookies out of it. After making 2 dozen or so, we tasted them and really couldn't taste any almonds. I added some almond extract, but they still tasted like just chocolate chip cookies with coconut in them. I think next time I make these, I will toast the almonds first...maybe even the coconut. Thanks! (I reduced the temp to 350* and still needed only 8 minutes bake time.)
I love this kind of cookie--just enough dough to hold all the goodies together. Chock full of chocolate chips, nuts and coconuts, these cookies are so rich you shouldn't make them too big. I used a small cookie scoop (2 teaspoon) and make 5+ dozen bite-sized cookies with half a batch. I felt I had better results pressing the dough down a bit, rather than leaving them rounded as the dough is quite stiff. Very good cookie though!
