I made these Almond White Chocolate cookies for my kids and their friends after school. I was busy in other parts of the house so I set the timer on the oven and then set the timer on my phone to go off a couple of minutes early. When the timer went off, I went back to the kitchen to take the cookies out of the oven, and to transfer the previous batch off the cookie sheet, to a rack to cool, but the cookies were already all gone off the cookie sheet! Thankfully there was a large bowl of cookie dough just waiting to be made into cookies and baked, that the kids also enjoyed.
ALMOND WHITE CHOCOLATE COOKIES
2 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/4 cups sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons almond extract
2 cups white chocolate chips
Heat oven to 375F.
Mix flour, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl.
Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy. Add eggs and almond extract, mix well. Gradually beat in flour mixture on low speed, until well mixed. Stir in chocolate chips.
Drop by tablespoons about 1 inch apart onto cookie sheets.
Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on baking sheets 1 minute. Remove to wire racks, cool completely.
