A delicious combo of coconut, almonds and chocolate chunks make these Almond Joy Chocolate Chip Cookies hard to resist!
In a medium bowl sift together flour, baking soda and salt. In a large bowl, beat the butter with hand held mixer or stand mixer fitted with paddle attachment until smooth, about two minutes. Add sugars and continue to beat for 2 minutes. Add egg and vanilla and mix until well blended. Slowly add the flour mixture until just incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chunks/chips, coconut and almonds with a spatula. Cover bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Using a small cookie scoop, pack the dough into the scoop and flatten with palm of your hand. Drop scoops 2 inches apart on parchment lined baking sheet. Sprinkle with some Maldon sea salt, if desired. Cookies will spread so make sure they are spaced apart.
