Almond Joy Cookies

I know it's July, but...this also means we only have 5 months until Christmas.....and I started planning for Christmas 7 months ago...so.....here's a cookie recipe I 'collected' last year at my school's annual cookie/recipe exchange.  My pal, Kristine made it, and not only was it delicious, it only required four ingredients, which is a win in my book at any time, but especially in the busy seasons of life!  It's not just a Christmas cookie, but...if you are looking for the perfect recipe to share this year at YOUR exchange, try this one out!
Almond Joy Cookies
Ingredients:  14 oz bag of sweetened coconut flakes, 2 c. semi-sweet chocolate chips, 2/3 c. chopped (lightly salted) almonds (Blu Diamond sells a low sodium brand), 14 oz can sweetened condensed milk
Instructions:
1.  Heat oven to 325 degrees.
2.  Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
3.  In a bowl combine the coconut, chocolate chips, almonds, and sweetened condensed milk.  Stir until combined.
5.  Scoop onto baking sheet.
6.  Moisten the tips of your fingers with your water and shape into discs.  Pat the tops flat.
