Homemade Sweet Treat, Almond Joy Cookies

Do you love coconut? How about chocolate? If you do then this cookie is for you. These yummy cookies are what I consider a cross between a chocolate chip cookie and a macaroon. They are very yummy but also very addictive. They didn’t last at our house long at all.

Almond Joy Cookies

My kids helped me make our cookies. My son is such a good little helper and loves to cook in the kitchen. I used a hand mixer to mix up the sugar and butter. Then add in the eggs. I just stirred in the rest of the ingredients by hand.

On cookie sheet ready to bake

I scooped the cookie dough by the teaspoonful and shaped it into a ball, just to keep them more uniform, since I don’t have a cookie scoop. I didn’t want some cooking faster than the others. I flattened the balls of cookie dough just ever so slightly and had the kids stick a chocolate chip on top.

Almond Cookies Baked

While baking these smelled so good. We were definitely ready for one when they came out of the oven. But we waited the cooling time. I like our cookies a little crisper so I baked them a few extra minutes.

Not only did these cookies smell wonderful but they taste so good too. If you know someone who loves coconut these cookies would be a great gift. I am adding them to my Christmas baking list this year.
