There is no story behind this recipe. I was just lying in bed, searching for recipes on my wife’s ipad when I came across it. I had the ingredients so I made them. You really don’t need to flatten them but with so many floaties in them, they don’t flatten out very much and come out pretty rounded.
Somewhere on the Internet
¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
½ cup light brown sugar, packed
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon almond extract
1¼ cups all-purpose flour
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup almonds, finely chopped
1 cup shredded coconut, unsweetened (I used sweetened)
1 cup mini chocolate chips
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Mix in the egg, vanilla, and almond extract. Beat until well blended.
In a small bowl, whisk together flour and salt. Add to butter mixture. Beat until just incorporated.
Stir in almonds, coconut, and chocolate chips.
Scoop 2 tablespoon balls and place each about 1 inch apart on a parchment-lined or nonstick baking sheet. Flatten with fork, fingertips or bottom of a glass, coated with butter and dipped into sugar before each flattening.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until bottoms are golden brown.
Let sit for a few minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.
Not too sweet.
Consider using coconut flavoring in addition to or in place of the almond extract.
