I mentioned in my last post that I have a new fondness for International Delight creamers.  I have so many recipe ideas swirling in my head that they have been keeping me up at night.  I just can’t wait to make all of them!

When I spotted the Almond Joy creamer in the grocery store I immediately grabbed it and knew that I had to do some fun things with it.  I mean who doesn’t love chocolate, coconut, and almonds?  Then you put them together and they are heaven!  Well, unless you are like my hubby and don’t like coconut.  Which I just can not understand.

These cookies are so soft and delicious! Yum! You can adjust the amounts of chocolate chips, coconut and almonds to your liking too. I say the more the merrier.

Ingredients
  • ¼ cup Butter
  • ¼ cup Shortening
  • ¾ cup Granulated Sugar
  • ¾ cup Brown Sugar
  • 1 Egg
  • ½ cup Almond Joy Creamer
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Bean Paste (or Vanilla Extract)
  • 2¼ cups All Purpose Flour
  • ½ tsp Baking Soda
  • ¼ tsp Salt
  • 1½ cups Chocolate Chips
  • 1 cup Shredded Coconut (I use sweetened)
  • ¾ cup Almond Slivers
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and shortening. Add the sugars and beat until creamy. Add the egg, creamer, and vanilla, Mix well.
  2. Mix in the flour, baking soda, and salt just until mixed.
  3. Fold in the chocolate chips, coconut, and almond slivers with a spatula.
  4. Scoop ¼ cup of dough and place on a parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake at 350 for about 12 minutes (baking time may vary).
Notes
* I prefer my cookies slightly underbaked so they are nice and soft. If you prefer a crunchier cookie, then add 2-3 minutes to baking time.
* I use a stand mixer for these as it makes baking life so much easier!
