1/2 cup Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup sweetened flaked coconut
1/2 cup sliced almonds
1/2 cup white baking chips


3/4 cup white baking chips
4 teaspoons shortening


Heat oven to 350°F. Combine butter, sugar and brown sugar in large bowl. Beat at medium speed, scraping bowl often, until creamy. Add eggs and almond extract; mix well. Reduce speed to low; add flour and baking soda. Mix well. Stir in coconut, almonds and 1/2 cup white baking chips.

Drop mixture by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 11 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets. Cool completely.

Place 3/4 cup white baking chips and shortening in small microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on High (100% power), stirring every 30 seconds, until melted (1 to 2 minutes). Drizzle over cooled cookies in a crisscross pattern.

Recipe Tip

- For easy clean up, place cookies on cooling racks over waxed paper. Drizzle with glaze.

- Spoon glaze into resealable plastic food bag. Snip off small corner of bag; drizzle glaze through hole onto cookies.

Recipe Comments & Reviews

I just baked those-and I love them!!! I did not have almond extract, but i did have regular almond slices as well as the other ingredients. Instead of butter though, i had to use margarine - and they still turned out to be perfect! I did not even have to drizzle them.We enjoyed them without the glaze. Amazingly tasty, soft, and interesting cookies. Thank you!.
Thank~you!!!I made these toward the end of baking this Christmas seasonI baked about 1200 cookies!!!!and these received a wonderful response . Absolutely will be made again. I've had a few requests already. Thank~you LandO'Lakes for this wonderful site. :Molly
