Almond White Chocolate Chunk Cookies

I big puffy heart LOVE almond tasting desserts. I had to buy a new bottle of almond extract and the box had a recipe on the back for cookies that sounded delicious. I took what I had on hand and slightly altered the recipe to make it my own. The results were a perfectly butter crisp cookie on the edges and super soft on the inside. My favorite type of cookie. They are studded with toasted crisp almonds and white chocolate chips. Both my husband and I loved these.

Sometimes a chocolate chip cookie just doesn’t cut it, you know? It’s nice to switch it up.
