Almond Joy Cookies

I love these cookies... but I love chocolate, coconut and almonds.  These cookies were a typical yummy chocolate chip cookie with a little added flare of coconut and slivered almonds.  My girls are at college so I didn't get a review from them but my hubby and teachers loved them.  I saw this recipe on Facebook!


Almond Joy Cookies  (This makes a lot!  I halved the recipe)

1 cup butter
1  1/2 cups white sugar
1  1/2 cups brown sugar
4 eggs
3 tsp vanilla
4  1/2 cups flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
5 cups chocolate chips
1 cups sweetened coconut
2 cups chopped almonds

Preheat oven to 375.  Lightly grease baking sheet.  Combine dry ingredients and set aside.  In large bowl, cream the butter and sugars together.  Beat in the eggs, one at a time and stir in vanilla.  Stir in the dry ingredients until well mixed.  Stir in the chocolate chips, coconut and almonds.  Drop by rounded spoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheet.  Bake for 8 - 10 minutes.  Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before moving to a wire rack to cool completely.
