Chewy Almond Chocolate Chip Cookies

It's less than 90 days before Christmas! And one of the awesome gifts you can give to your family and friends this holidays are good ol' cookies straight from your kitchen. I'd like to share with you a recipe we whipped out from the usual chocolate chip cookies you eat. I ate some of the soft chocolate chip cookies made by Mamanee a few weeks back and was inspired to make this.

Why change the recipe? You see, I have some almond flour left in the pantry from the purchase I did a few months back when I wanted to bake french macarons. Sad to say, I have not yet achieved the perfect macarons up to this day. So I've been adding almond flour in my recipes so I can use-up the supply that we have.

2 cups All-purpose flour
1/4 cup almond flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
3/4 cup unsalted butter
2 large eggs
1 cup light brown sugar (or washed sugar)
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips

1. Prepare cookie sheets with baking paper. Preheat your oven to 350F.
2. In a bowl, whisk all-purpose flour, almond flour, and baking soda
3. In another bowl, cream butter with sugar.
4. Add salt, vanilla extract and eggs. Mix.
5. Add the flour mixture. Mix.
6. Stir in chocolate chips.
7. Using a round measuring spoon, get a tablespoon of mixture, use your hands and mold into a ball. If the mixture is too sticky to handle, pop it in the fridge for a few minutes.
8. Bake cookies for 8-10 minutes.

If you don't have any almond flour, you can substitute it with all-purpose flour.
