Joy Cookies

These coconut-chocolate-almond-topped shortbread cookies are reminiscent of Almond Joy candy bars.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon milk
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2/3 cup whole-wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons semisweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 3 tablespoons coconut, toasted
  • 48 almonds, sliced

Instructions

Step 1
Preheat oven to 375°F. Coat a 15-by-10-inch baking sheet with 1-inch sides with cooking spray.
Step 2
Beat sugar, butter, oil, egg, milk and almond extract in a mixing bowl with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Stir in all-purpose flour, whole-wheat flour, baking powder and salt until well blended. (It will be a soft dough.) Spread the dough into the prepared baking pan in a thin layer.
Step 3
Bake until golden brown, about 12 minutes. Cool in the pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Cut into 48 bars.
Step 4
Decorate each bar with a drizzle of melted chocolate, a sprinkle of toasted coconut and an almond slice.
