Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies


I saw this recipe over on Picky Palate and I knew I had to make it ASAP!  I love almond flavored anything.  These were easy to make and tasted great.  You don't notice the almond flavor at first, but then you get a bite and you can really taste it.  I was really hoping the almond flavor would be more prominent - because I love it so much.   I think that next time I will add 2 tsp vanilla and 1 tsp of almond extract.  I think that will give me the almond kick I am looking for.  Now don't get me wrong, these cookies are great.  The cookies were crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside - aka perfect!  I have half of the almond paste left, so I am going to give them another whirl.

2 sticks softened butter
3/4 Cup granulated sugar
3/4 Cup brown sugar
3.5 oz Odense Pure Almond Paste (package is 7 oz, just cut in half)
2 egg
1 Tablespoon vanilla
2 1/2 Cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
12 oz bag chocolate chips
3/4 Cup slivered almonds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars until well combined, light and fluffy. Add the almond paste in pieces until well combined. Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined. In a large bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips. Mix until just combined. Scoop onto a silpat or parchment lined baking sheet with a medium cookie scoop. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until just golden crisp on the outside. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.

  2. Those do look and sound great to me, too. I saw them at Picky Palate, too, and would have never thought to use almond paste like that.
