Coconut Almond Cookies

Last week we took the Christmas pictures for this year’s Christmas cards. Since my dear hubby is an amateur photographer and he got a great camera from his dad, a professional photographer, we have our own photo shoots.  We had a blast, as always. Even though it got a little crazy and the little man kept taking out the backdrop before the photo shoot even began, we had fun!
I got this idea to take photos of the little man making Santa’s cookies, then take the picture of him eating those cookies. Of course, I had to get the props all ready for the photo shoot, so I made these wonderful cookies!!
Check out our pictures at the end of this post!



Ingredients:
1 cup unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup coconut flakes
1/2 cup chopped almonds

Directions:
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
2. beat the butter until smooth and creamy

3. Add the white and brown sugars and beat until fluffy

4. Beat in eggs, one at a time, beat well after each addition
5. Add the vanilla, beat well
6. Add the flour, baking soda and salt and beat until incorporated

7. Add the coconut flakes and almonds. Mix well using a rubber spatula

8. Scoop about a two-tablespoon size balls of dough onto the baking sheet and bake for about 13 minutes until the edges and golden brown.

Enjoy!!
