Almond Joy Cookies

1 C butter (softened)
1 1/2 C white sugar
1 1/2 C brown sugar
4 eggs
3 tsp vanilla
4 1/2 C flour
2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
4 C chocolate Chips
2 C sweetened coconut
2 C chopped almonds

1.Pre-heat oven to 375°F Lightly grease cookie sheets.
2.Combine dry ingredients, set aside.
3.In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars together. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, stir in the vanilla. Stir in the dry ingredients until well mixed then stir in the chocolate chips, coconut and almonds. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheets.

4.Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.

* I thought that these were really good. I only made a half recipe and it made 4 dozen cookies. I also added about 1/4 tsp almond extract just to give it a little more almond extract. These were really good on day one. Day two they were still soft and by day three they were not as good. So make sure that you eat them all fresh :)
