Easy Cookie Recipes – Chocolate Chip Cookies with Almonds, Cranberries and Coconut

  • Author: Mavis Butterfield



2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup {2 sticks} unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed light-brown sugar
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 cups semi sweet chocolate chips
1 cup dried cranberries 1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1 cup toasted almonds, chopped


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour and baking soda; set aside.
  3. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the butter with both sugars; beat on medium speed until light and fluffy.
  4. Reduce speed to low; add the salt, vanilla, and eggs. Beat until well mixed, about 1 minute.
  5. Add flour mixture; mix until just combined.
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips, cranberries, almonds and coconut.
  7. Drop heaping tablespoon-size balls of dough about 2 inches apart on lined baking sheets {I use silpats}.
  8. Bake 10 minutes.
  9. Remove from oven, and let cool and then transfer to a wire rack.
