The reason we gave these cookies a 4 star rating is that the amount of chocolate called for in the recipe is far too overpowering. We scaled it back to 3 cups and it seemed to allow the almond and coconut flavors to blend in as well.
We subsituted 3 cups unlbeached flour + 1.5 cups whole wheat flour and used sliced almonds. Once we got the chocolate ratio right these cookies were fabulous! Quick, easy, and freeze well. A great quick addition to your recipe box.
Too cake like, and way too many chocolate chips. Cookies hardened as soon as they cooled.
Once modified this is a great recipe. I used only 2-1/2 cups of chocolate chips 2 tsp of vanilla extract, 2 tsp Coconut extract, added a full 14 oz bag of shredded coconut and only 4 cups of flour. Cooked for 13 minutes and allowed to fully cool. My wife couldn't keep her hands off them :)
This recipe is wonderful! I baked the cookies at 350 degrees for 7 1/2 minutes instead of 375 for 8 minutes. They stayed soft and moist. By far, they are one of the best cookies I've ever made.
Easy to make and delicious. I only made half the recipe, which was plenty. Other modifications: I didn't have any baking soda, so I used baking powder (1 tsp soda = 2 tsp powder), and omitted the salt. I substituted half the vanilla with almond extract, added 1/4 cup extra coconut (because I wanted to finish my jar of it), and added about 1/2 cup less of chocolate chips than called for. These really do taste like almond joy (at least with the almond extract and extra coconut in there), and are a really nice texture. Will definitely make this one again!
Excellent cookie recipe Brenda. This will go in the favorites file. I used only 3 cups chocolate chips (mixed milk choc and semi sweet) and they were perfect. Oh yeah, I bought slivered almonds and toasted them. They added a wonderful nutty flavor. Thanks for a great new treat!
I made these for the opening of our new Church. These are the BEST cookies I've ever made! They are expensive but well worth it. I used a melon baller to drop them by and got beautiful, same size cookies. Got about 8 dozen. They freeze very well. I made cookies for about 6 weeks and these were just like they had just come out of the oven.
I agree with Mom of Three. Have same amount of chips, cocnut & nuts. If you don't have coconut try oatmeal that's also works. Also, cook at 350 degrees for 8 min. for a more moist cookie. Great cookie!
