"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!"

"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."

"Bland & the almond extract a tad over powering with smell"

"This isn't a very pretty cookie but it does taste very good! I found that I had to watch them very closely- they get overdone in the blink of an eye. I also ended up rotating my cookie sheet half way through the baking time for more uniform cookies."

"DELICIOUS! Simple to make and oh-so-good. I used semi-sweet chocolate chips because that's what I keep in my pantry. My husband agreed that this was definitely a keeper!"
