My husband and I made up this recipe when we were had just started dating nearly six years ago (!!!). Wow. I can't believe I haven't shared it yet. This is really just a basic cookie, so nothing difficult to confuse you at this hectic time of year. This would be the perfect last minute addition to Santa's cookie plate.

Chocolate Chip & Walnut Oatmeal Cookies
Almond Joy Cookies
2 sticks room temp butter (I generally use 1 unsalted, 1 salted)
3/4 C white sure
3/4 c loosely packed brown sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 C all purpose flour
1/4 C cocoa powder
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3/4 C chopped almond
5 oz unsweetened coconut
1 C semi-sweet chocolate chips
Cream butter and sugar together. Incorporate eggs. Add vanilla.
Combine flour, cocoa, baking soda, and salt. Slowly mix into butter mixture. I think three batches is good. When the third addition of flour is almost fully incorporated, add coconut. Mix. Fold in chocolate chips and almonds.
Spoon heaping tablespoons onto a cookie sheet about 2 inches apart.
Back at 350 deg F for 10 minutes.
Makes ~3 dozen.
