Almond Lover's Chocolate Chip Cookies

I found this recipe over at picky-palate.com and couldn't wait to try it...Well, living in Southeastern Ohio, sometimes causes problems finding cooking ingredients, that the rest of the United States takes for granted! I have never heard of Almond Paste, this of course sent me on a mission. Luckily, I found it in the bakery section at Giant Eagle in North Canton. This has a different texture then I'm used to... Next time..I will add the almond pieces...I miss the crunch!

Almond Lover's Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 sticks soft butter

3/4 cup granulated sugar

3/4 cup light brown sugar

3 ounces Odense Almond Paste - Comes in 7 ounce log - cut log in half
2 eggs

1 Tablespoon vanilla

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. salt

12 ounce bag of chocolate chips (I used milk chocolate chips)

3/4 cup chopped almonds (I will add these next time)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a stand or electric mixer cream butter and sugars, until well combined, light and fluffy. Add the almond paste in pieces until well combined. Add in eggs and vanilla until well combined.

In a large bowel combine flour, baking soda, salt. Slowly add to wet ingredients along with the chocolate chips. Mix until well combined. Scoop onto a silpat or parchment paper lined cookie sheet. Cook for 10-12 minutes until golden brown and crispy on the outside. Let cool for 5 minutes before transferring to cooling rack.
