Hey hey! I'm making up for my lack of actual food pics with some amazing cookies! I decided that since it seems like those Almond Joy Cookies have a shot of winning the bracket, I should probably come up with a recipe for them. I've never actually made them before but I LOVE the combination of almonds, chocolate and coconut...in fact, they are my favorite 3 flavors :)
So I got to baking...how do they look?
Coconut flavored cookies (secret weapon is coconut extract)...
Sliced almonds (may trade them out for slivered almonds for more texture and almondy flavor)...
...and shredded coconut for that extra coconut boost!
What do you think? Do they sound good? I'm going to test a different version with a chocolate cookie, shredded coconut and almond. We'll see which one works out best!
What are your favorite flavors that would work well in a cookie?
