Crunchy Cookies


This recipe is one of many I copied down from a Taste Of Home. One summer I worked in a ticket booth at a local amusement park and often had alot of free time in between sales. Especially on rainy days. I would page through the magazines and copy down all the ones I wanted to try someday.

Someday is here for Crunchy Cookies!! Here they are:


What attracted me to these was the almond flavor. I love anything with almond.  This recipe had plenty of almonds, coconut and chocolate chips! They were kind of like a "kicked up" chocolate chip cookie. They were crispy on the edges and soft in the middle. A nice addition to my cookie jar recipes!

Crunchy Cookies

1 c. butter, softened
3/4 c. sugar
3/4 c. brown sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 tsp. almond extract
2 c. flour
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
2 c. coconut
2 c. milk chocolate chips
1 1/2 c. chopped almonds

Cream butter and sugars. Beat in eggs and extracts. Add the rest of the dry ingredients. Mix well. Fold in the coconut, almonds, and chocolate chips. Drop by teaspoonful onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 for 10 min.

What a neat twist on the usual chocolate chip cookie. It really sounds like it's chock full of goodies.

Laurie, these cookies are delicious. I must, must, must bake these for my class so I can taste them, rather than devour them,if I made them for the house. Thanks for sharing these.
