Almond Joy Cookies
What could be better than an almond joy? Almond joy cookies of course. You will love these chocolate chip cookies with coconut and almond.
White Granulated Sugar
(1 1/2 Cups)
Light Brown Sugar, Packed
(1 1/2 Cups)
(4 1/2 Cups)
Milk Chocolate Chips
(1/2 of a 11.5 Oz Bag)
Sweetened Coconut Flakes
Preheat the oven to 350° Fahrenheit (176° Celsius).
In a large mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to cream together the softened butter, white sugar, and brown sugar. Stir down the sides of the bowl.
Mix in one egg at a time and add vanilla and mix until well incorporated.
In a separate mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, and salt.
Slowly mix in the flour mixture into the wet ingredients and stir until well incorporated.
Gently fold in the chocolate chips, almonds, and coconut flakes.
Use a cookie scoop to place 1 1/2 tablespoon-sized balls of cookie dough onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Be sure to leave room for cookie expansion.
Bake cookies for 10 to 12 minutes until the edges are just slightly brown. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes before serving.
Keep in mind that larger cookies will need longer baking times and smaller cookies will need less time. The cookies will finish baking on the pan. Avoid overbaking or the cookies will be crumbly.
