Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 2/3 cups granulated sugar
  • 2/3 cups packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • pinch salt
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup chopped toasted almond
  • 1/2 cup sweetened shredded coconut

Method

In large bowl, beat butter with granulated sugar and brown sugar until fluffy; beat in eggs, 1 at a time. Beat in vanilla.

In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt; stir into butter mixture in 3 additions just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips, almonds and coconut.

Drop by rounded 1 tbsp, 2 1/2 inches (6 cm) apart, onto parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheets. Bake in top and bottom thirds of 350°F (180°C) oven, switching and rotating sheets halfway through, until tops are firm and bottoms are light golden, 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool on pans for 5 minutes; transfer directly to racks to cool completely. (Make-ahead: Store in airtight container for up to 5 days or freeze for up to 1 month.)
