Because we can.

Earlier, as I lay in bed thinking what would be better than chocolate chip cookies… Obviously the answer was almond – that was a no-brainer. Than I continued ruminating – what would be better than almond chocolate chip cookies? The answer came quickly. Adult cookies. Don’t worry you can still drive after eating these. Unless you eat all of them at once to which I say – bully for you.

The base of this recipe, the “2 1/4 cups” of flour is from the original one on the bag of chocolate chips. I figured these people probably know what they’re doing by now. The rest has been toyed with.

The 2nd thought you should have after the initial, most important one (“OMG – I should make cookies!!”) is “Hot diggity, I better get the butter out NOW!!”. Seriously. Get the butter out now.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup butter room temperature!
  • 3/4 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs room temperature
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pure almond extract
  • 2 TBSP rum
  • 1 cup chocolate morsels (semi-sweet or dark)

Instructions

  • In a medium bowl – whisk together flour, salt and baking soda. Put aside.
  • In your stand mixer or a large bowl – beat together the softened butter and the sugars until fluffy.
  • Add the 2 eggs, the almond extract and 2 TBSP of rum and mix until well combined.
  • In approximate thirds, add the flour mixture to the batter. Once all in – only mix until just combined. Turn off the freaking mixer before you ruin everything.
  • Add the chocolate morsels by stirring in by hand with a wooden spoon. Again – don't overdo it.
  • Use your cookie scoop or rounded tablespoons to put cookies on the prepared baking sheets. Leave room (2" or more) between each cookie.
  • Preheat your oven to 350 F and put some parchment paper or grease on you cookie sheet(s).
  • Bake at 350 F for 10-12 minutes until lightly browned.
  • Remove from oven and let them rest for 2 minutes before removing them from cookie sheet to cooling racks to finish cooling.
