Almond Joy Cookies

Anna Vandenhazel


Someone posted this recipe on Facebook awhile back, and a friend asked me to e-mail it to her. I couldn't find this exact recipe on Just-a-Pinch, so I'm adding to make it easier for her to find the recipe. These cookies have been a big hit at 2 family reunions in the past 3 years.
