Chocolate Chip Almond Cookies

Chocolate Chip Almond Cookies are divine. I mean these cookies are so scrumptious good. I started with one of my favorite Chocolate Chip Cookie recipes. But I added diced almonds instead of the pecans that are normally in the recipe. What a combination. These cookies were sensational!

I had five 30-oz. bags of whole almonds taking up space in my pantry. My husband used to go through a bag for snacks every couple of weeks or so. But he stopped eating them and so I had all these almonds that needed to be used up. I started putting them in all kinds of cookie combinations. I still have a couple of bags to go, but I’m getting there. 🙂

Chocolate Chip Almond Cookies are a big, substantial cookie with lots of crunch, yet soft and gooey on the inside. I used two whole bags of miniature chocolate chips in this recipe, so they’re really chocolaty. The one thing you’ll need to do is make sure you really stir the batter exceptionally well. I usually end up stirring it about 5 minutes. You heard me right. FIVE MINUTES.

It takes that long for all the flour to adhere and start forming really large clumps. Then I pack it down into the cookie scoop before placing it the cookie dough on ungreased cookie sheets. If you fail to stir the dough long enough, or fail to pack the dough into the cookie scoop, the dough will come out in clumps on the cookie sheet and you have to start over.

Because the cookies are so large they take awhile to bake. Mine usually take about 18 minutes but I also rotate the cookie pans on the wire racks in the oven about every 7-8 minutes while baking. That ensures even baking but it will cool down the oven a little so the cookies take a little longer to bake.

These irresistible cookies are wonderful for tailgating or office parties, soccer, hockey or gym practice with your kids, potlucks, backyard barbecues or family reunions. Everyone will enjoy these crunchy, chocolaty cookies. You may even have to bake a second batch. 🙂

Equipment

  • 2 large cookie pans

Ingredients
  

  • 1 1/2 cups unsalted butter softened (3 sticks)
  • 1 1/4 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups brown sugar packed
  • 1 tbsp. real vanilla extract tablespoon NOT teaspoon (no substitutes)
  • 2 large eggs
  • 4 cups UNBLEACHED all-purpose flour (Bleached flour toughens baked goods
  • 2 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. sea salt
  • 2 12-oz. pkgs. miniature 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, 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 pans approximately 3-inches apart.
  • Rotate cookies on racks every seven to eight minutes while baking.
  • Bake 12-15 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Cool cookies about 5 minutes on cookie pans before removing to wire racks to cool completely.

Notes

NOTE: My cookies took about 18 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.
