I told my husband, ” I may even have time to make cookies today!” Usually he says something like, “Great”, but this time he asked me to make these Triple Chocolate Almond Cookies. I can’t blame him! They are nutty and delicious. When you bake them the almonds rise to the top and get a rich roasted flavour. The cocoa and salt balance the richness and they are just terrific! He’s more of a salty snack person but these are a total hit no matter what people’s snacking preference. I’ve adapted the recipe from another Blog to have whole almonds and bunch more chocolate chips. I don’t mess around with chocolate chips! Took a few edits but I think it is now PERFECTION! They are a beautifully soft cookie with the crunch of whole almonds.
