A friend said they love Halloween as they buy candy that they love to eat, in this case Almond Joys. So I whipped up this recipe and now everyone wants me to make these for them for Christmas. The coconut flavor doesn't appear till the end of munching the cookie that gives a wonderful afterglow of flavor.
