The dough freezes well, just in case you’d like to save some for later, but these cookies go fast!
Filled with sweet flaked coconut, chocolate, and crunchy almonds, this is a cookie you’ll be happy to whip up any time that craving hits you.

This is a great tip to keep on hand, especially during the holidays!
Roll the dough into balls, then place them on baking sheet.
Freeze them for about 30 minutes to harden the dough to avoid sticking.

Then, add cookie dough balls to a freezer bag and store in freezer.
When you’re ready to bake them, let the cookies sit out for 20 minutes or so while the oven is preheating (so they can defrost a little).

You might need to bake the cookies for a few minutes longer, so be sure to keep an eye on them to prevent burning.
