Good chocolate cookie, not to sweet.

Great cookie! Made it for a friend who was dairy and gluten intolerant. Made half a recipe and substituted flaked coconut (1 1/2 cups for the reduced recipe) instead of almonds. It turned out great. Everyone loved them! I'm looking forward to making them again with the almonds. Thanks!

I made these too. We had four varieties this year. Loved the almond and chocolate flavors together. I watch for your recipes. Thanks for adding to the site!
