White Chocolate Almond Cookies

Teresa

White Chocolate is one of my favorite things. Put it in cookies, cakes or pies and look out! White Chocolate Almond Cookies are one of those irresistible desserts that you won’t be able to stay out of. Pull up in your easy chair with a glass of milk and a stack of these cookies and sigh in delight. 🙂

Truth be told, I was trying to get rid of an exorbitant amount of almonds in late spring and early summer. I had five 30-ounce bags taking up space in my pantry. So I started making lots of cookies with them. I made Cranberry Almond White Chocolate Cookies, Butterscotch Cookies, Mint Chocolate Fudge Cookies and several gluten free cookies. All were fantastic and since I finely diced the almonds, many couldn’t even tell what kind of nut was in the cookie.

I started with one of my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipes and swapped out almonds for pecans and white chocolate chips for regular. It was a match made in heaven. I used real white chocolate chips–not vanilla chips or premiere white baking chips which have no cocoa in them. REAL WHITE CHOCOLATE CHIPS! So much better.

White Chocolate Almond Cookies are an excellent choice for upcoming Christmas Cookie Exchanges too. These cookies are whopper-sized so they take a little longer to bake than the average-sized cookie. But oh my, are they a delight to the taste buds. Check them out and you’ll soon have your batch gobbled down to the last crumb. 🙂

White chocolate chips are so superior to vanilla chips in my opinion. Unfortunately they aren’t always easy to find. I locate them in the DFW Metroplex at Kroger in their private selection or at Trader Joe’s.

Here’s what I did.

Add UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour. Bleached flour toughens baked goods. Add REAL white chocolate chips (no substitutions) and finely diced almonds.

Bake at 350 degrees for about 16 minutes. Rotate cookie sheets on racks after 8 minutes of baking time. My cookies took 18 minutes to bake completely because they’re really large.

While many people are allergic to walnuts and pecans, I’ve found that most people are not allergic to almonds. If you don’t have a nut allergy, these cookies are for you!

Equipment

  • 3 3/4 sheet pans
  • 1 large cookie scoop

Ingredients
  

  • 1 1/2 cups butter softened (3 sticks)
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar packed
  • 1 tbsp. vanilla extract (tablespoon NOT teaspoon)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 4 cups unbleached all purpose flour (bleached flour toughens baked goods)
  • 2 11.5-oz. bags white chocolate chips
  • 2 cups chopped almonds

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • Mix butter, sugars, eggs, vanilla, baking soda and salt with electric beaters until smooth.
  • Stir in flour, white chocolate chips and almonds.
  • With a large cookie scoop, scoop cookie dough and pack it into the cookie scoop before leveling it off.
  • Place onto ungreased cookie sheets approximately 3-inches apart.
  • Bake 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Rotate cookies on racks every seven to eight minutes while baking.
  • Cool cookies about 5 minutes on cookie sheets before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

Notes

NOTE: My cookies took about 18-20 minutes to bake completely.
 
NOTE: You will probably need to stir the cookie dough about 5 minutes to get all the flour worked into it.
 
NOTE: Because this recipe uses so much flour, I usually keep stirring after the flour has been worked in so that the dough is no longer crumbly. I continue stirring until the dough starts adhering together in large clumps.
 
NOTE: If the dough crumbles when you place it on the cookie sheet, the dough either isn’t stirred well enough or the dough is not packed into the cookie scoop firmly enough.
 
NOTE: I purchase the white chocolate chips at Kroger or Trader Joe’s.
