"So good, we love these...different, tasty...just like an almond joy in a delicious cookie. I used slivered almonds and left them chunky, wow. Yummo. I am editing this review...I added these to my xmas cookie platter and people went crazy for them. Just as easy as a drop choc chip cookie to make, but the taste is like nothing people have experienced. Another winner!"

"I didn't use almond extract or almonds since a few of us can't eat nuts but they were soooo good! Tasted like a Mounds bar."

"My cookies spread and flattened out. They tasted like a chocolate chip cookie with coconut added to it. Nothing memorable."

"These are pretty good but the almond extract is too overpowering. Next time I will cut the almond extract in half so to better balance the different flavors."
