In honor of Cookie Friday, here’s a ridiculously delicious (and easy) cookie recipe to help you celebrate. (I honestly don’t think I’ve loved a cookie this much in a long time.) The flavors of coconut, chocolate, and almond (i.e. Almond Joy) are some of my very favorites, so these cookies taste absolutely incredible to me. Thick, rich, soft, and gooey, I have a feeling you will love them too!
