How to Make Almond Joy Cookies
You’ll find that there are very few steps to these cookies because they are so simple you don’t have to do a whole lot. They can be made in just a few minutes, and there isn’t much effort required at all. The oven does all the hard work! Take a look:
First Step: Warm up the oven to 300 degrees F. Then place parchment paper on two baking sheets and set aside.
Second Step: Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a small bowl using a whisk.
Third Step: Put the paddle attachment on a stand mixer and beat the butter and sugar together until they become light and fluffy. Add in the eggs and beat some more. Then mix in the vanilla and almond extracts and combine. Pour in the flour mixture slowly until it’s combined. Then gently fold in the chocolate chips, almonds, and sweetened coconut and stir.
Fourth Step: Make cookie rounds and place them on the baking sheet leaving 2 inches in between each cookie. Bake for 18 – 20 minutes or until they have set up and are done.
