These coconut-chocolate-almond-topped shortbread cookies are reminiscent of Almond Joy candy bars.

Almond extract is overpowering

My boyfriend and I both thought these had far too much almond extract; It really overwhelmed all of the other flavors. I was planning on making these for a cookie exchange, but ended up making something else instead.

Maybe I did something wrong but these were only okay. My boyfriend, who finishes off everything food related, wouldn't even finish this batch. They weren't bad - in fact I thought the batter was more delicious than the finished product. They just weren't desirable. I've made cookies before that I couldn't wait to get home and eat one of them. These weren't worth the 53 calories even. I followed the directions perfectly but didn't even get the 4 dozen it boasts. It was more like 2 dozen. Maybe I didn't beat it long enough with the mixer? They also were not as thick as pictured. Won't make them again unless someone here can give me tips if they had a better experience.

while i was eating the first of many magical treats i had to come up with a plan to stop eating them.
Theycan beat out any other sweet craving, that is if you like coconut and almonds, but who does not.
i say five stars. however i put low shugar chocolate chips on mine to up tthe sweet factor.
