Ingredients

  • 3 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cups butter
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar packed
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon almond or vanilla extract
  • 1 cup sliced almonds
  • 1 cup chocolate chunks
  • 1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
  • 1 cup dried cranberries

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375.
  • Lay almonds on a baking sheet and bake for 6-8 minutes until lightly browned. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
  • In a large bowl beat together butter, sugar and brown sugar until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  • Add eggs and extract, mix well. Add flour in two or three additions and mix on low speed until just combined.
  • Stir in almonds, coconut, chocolate chunks and dried cranberries.
