Inspired by the favorite almond, coconut, and chocolate candy bar, these loaded Almond Joy Cookies are sure to steal the show on any holiday cookie platter or cookie swap they show up at.  

How to Make It

Step 1

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Beat brown sugar, granulated sugar, and butter with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Add eggs, 1 at a time, and beat just until blended. Add vanilla, and beat until blended.

Step 2

Stir together flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder in a large bowl. Gradually add flour mixture to butter mixture, and beat on low speed until fully incorporated, about 1 minute. Stir in chocolate chips, coconut, and almonds until evenly distributed. Cover and refrigerate dough 30 minutes or up to 1 hour. 

Step 3

Preheat oven to 350°F. Using a 1 1/4-inch cookie scoop or a tablespoon, drop cookie dough 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven until lightly golden, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on baking sheet on a wire rack 5 minutes; transfer cookies to wire rack, and cool completely, about 30 minutes.

Question only

My question is about the amount of butter.  Is it one cup or 4 ounces?  I hope a cup because I have to make them NOW.

I had the exact question. A cup of butter is 8 oz., I'm gonna' go withe the 8 oz. These are very rich and they look chewy/soft, so the 8 oz. sounds correct.
