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!
