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.
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls (or using a small ice cream scoop for more uniform cookies) about 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-12 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets for a minute before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
