almond chocolate chunk cookies

adapted from How Sweet Eats

12 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1 egg plus 1 egg yolk

1 teaspoon vanilla

1/2 teaspoon almond extract

2 cups plus 2 tablespoons flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 - 1 1/2 cups chocolate chunks

1/2 cup chopped almonds

Preheat oven to 325. In a large mixing bowl or the bowl of a stand mixer, combine butter and sugars and mix until combined. Add egg and egg yolk, vanilla, and almond extract, and mix until combined. Add flour, baking soda, and salt, and mix until just combined (be careful not to over mix). By hand, mix in chocolate chunks and chopped almonds. Divide dough into eighteen large balls. Pull each ball into two pieces using your hands. Place one half, rough side down, on a lightly greased baking sheet, then place the other half, rough side up, on top of the first half. Bake 12-15 minutes, or until very lightly browned around the edges. The middles of the cookies should still be soft. Let cool on baking sheet for 5-10 minutes, then remove to cooling rack. Enjoy!
