I love the combination of almond, coconut and chocolate. These nutty, joyful cookies are perfect for all the moms who do so much for so many with joy and love.  Bake up some love on Mother’s Day or any other day for that matter!

Makes about 20 medium cookies


1 stick softened unsalted butter

1 cup brown sugar

4 tbsp granulated sugar

1 egg

1/2 tsp almond extract

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 3/4 cup flour

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp baking soda

1/2 tsp baking powder

1 cup sweetened shredded coconut

3/4 cup sliced almonds

7 oz chocolate chunks ( milk or semi-sweet is fine)

Directions:  Preheat oven to 325 convection.  In a small bowl combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.  In a standing mixer with paddle attachment, blend butter with sugars until creamy.  Add egg and extract and mix to combine. Blend in flour combination on low and remaining ingredients until incorporated.  Take about a tablespoon and a half of dough, place on cookie sheet about 1 inch apart. Bake for about 10-12 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes. Remove and transfer to a rack to cool completely.
