A while back I saw an Almond Joy style cookie recipe and I sort of filed the idea in the back of my brain for the next time we went over to see her.
Rather than using actual Almond Joy bits like I originally saw (probably on Pinterest), I decided to go with something a little different. This cookie was based on a chocolate chip recipe. Give it a try and let me know what you think.
Almond Joy Cookie Recipe
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp fine salt
16 tbl unsalted butter, room temperature (yes it’s a lot, but these cookies are worth it)
1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
2 cups roughly chopped almonds
3 cups semisweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a medium bowl mix together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
Cream butter and sugar together in a large bowl, until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time and mix thoroughly. Once mixed, add flour mixture.
Once you’ve got everything mixed together, add coconut, almonds and chocolate chips.
When I make balls of dough, I like to make sure that the goodies (coconut, almonds and chocolate chips are all neatly tucked inside). Place dough balls on cookie sheet and bake for 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees.
