Instructions Checklist

  • 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. 

  • 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.
