Cocoa Coconut Almond Cookies

Cocoa Coconut Almond Cookies

These cookies came out awesome after two tries. The first time I made them, they were fantastic crispy cookies to have with tea or coffee, but my family thought they should be softer. I was perfectly happy with the former, but to please the rest of the population…

These are like the ever-soft chewy chocolate chip cookie you always have loved. So, it’s really a no-brainer for home or taking to a party or giving as a gift any time of the year.
