Tempt My Tummy Tuesday - Almond Joy Cookies

Get the yellow bowl out and try the best cookies ever!  These cookies are even better the next day.  Last week I mailed them to my oldest grandson in Kentucky and the delivery notice in the dorm got pushed to back of mail box and so they were actually a week old when he got them and yet he said they were great.  I love a "pretty" cookie and these come out of the oven thick and wonderful full of gooey chocolate, almonds and coconut.  Yum!  I added white chips too as you can see below.

Almond Joy Cookies

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

Pre-heat oven to 375°F Lightly grease cookie sheets.

Combine dry ingredients, set aside.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars together. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, stir in the vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredients until well mixed then stir in the chocolate chips, coconut and almonds. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.

Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
