Almond Joy Cookies Recipe
These delicious Almond Joy cookies have a chewy center, crispy edge, and loaded with your favorite candy bar flavor. A blend of sweet coconut, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and sliced almonds.
- 1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
- 1/3 cup granulated sugar
- 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
- 1 large egg, room temperature
- 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 cup shredded coconut flakes, sweetened
- 3/4 cup mini semi-sweet chocolate chips (more if desired)
- 3/4 cup almonds, sliced
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet (or two) with parchment paper or silpat.
In a small bowl whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.
With an electric mixer cream together the unsalted butter, granulated sugar, and brown sugar until light and fluffy.
Add the egg, and vanilla extract and mix until just incorporated.
Gradually add the dry ingredients into the creamed butter and sugar mixture and mix just until combined. Do not overmix.
Stir in the coconut, semi-sweet chocolate chips, and almonds.
Use a 1 1/2 tablespoon cookie scoop to drop rounded spoonfuls of the dough onto the prepared baking sheet about 2 inches apart.
Bake on the center rack for 9-12 minutes. Watch closely, all ovens are not the same and the can brown very quickly.
Cool on the baking sheet for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
