I've been wanting to make these for a long time. I made a special trip to the store last night for the coconut and Almond Joy Pieces and was horrified that my store didn't have the candy. I started to panic, but saw a large bag of coconut M&Ms and decided to try those instead. To make up for the almond that the M&Ms don't have, I added 1/4 tsp almond extract along with the coconut extract that the recipe calls for. Right when they came out of the oven (9 minutes was perfect), I pressed three additional M&Ms onto the tops of the cookies. These are AMAZING!!!! Not only are they delicious, but keep a nice shape (they don't spread), and present beautifully. Also, I like the amount this makes. Not overwhelming...I got two cookie sheets worth (24 cookies). These will be a regular around here now. PERFECT! Everyone loved them!!!
