100% my new FAVORITE cookie!!! Almond Joy is my favorite candy and the dough (ok, I admit to being one of those who eat the dough... someone has to taste it right, mine as well be me?!?!) DOES taste just like an almond joy candy bar - and the baked up cookies are to die for!!!
I served them at a BBQ last night and to family today and and twice someone said 'these are way too good' and they really are, every single person had seconds! DS also loved 'em. I toasted my almonds and roughly chopped them, used half sweetened and half unsweetened coconut and used 1 regular size bag mini chocolate chips - and subbed 1/4 cup egg beaters for one of the eggs. I have a 4.5qt kitchen aid mixer and it was full to the brim - the amount written makes a huge amount of cookies. I had to have my DH stir at the very end, the mixer just wasn't going to cut it. I baked up half and froze the rest of the dough (don't know why I bothered I'm going to have to make again for our next get together tomorrow!)
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.
