A friend of mine makesa cookie like this every Christmas and I had to beg for the recipe, she wouldn't share. I decided to give it a go and make my version. These taste just like an Almond Joy candy bar. It's definitely become a favorite. This recipe makes a huge batch of cookies. Depending on the size you make them. You can freeze the dough and have handy when unexpected company or events pop up. This recipe is easy to cut in half. I love the taste of the coconut and have added more to the half batch.
