Almond Joy Cookies

  • ½ cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup half & half
  • 1 tsp almond extract
  • 2¼ cups flour
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1½ cups chocolate chips
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • ¾ cup slivered almonds

Preheat the oven to 350 F. Line two baking sheets with silicone baking mats.

In a large mixing bowl, mix together the butter and the sugars and beat until creamy. Add the egg, half & half, and almond extract. Mix well.

Mix in the flour, baking soda, and salt just until mixed.

Fold in the chocolate chips, coconut, and slivered almonds gently, to avoid crushing the chips and nuts.

Scoop generous tablespoons of dough and place them on a silicone mat-lined cookie sheet. Bake them in the preheated oven for about 12 minutes (baking time may vary).

  • Yields: 4 dozen cookies
