  • ½ cup (113g) unsalted butter, melted
  • cup (66g) granulated sugar
  • ½ cup (104g) packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon 5ml vanilla extract
  • ¼ teaspoon almond extract
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 ½ cups (186g) all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup Almond M&Ms plus more for topping
  • ½ cup sliced almonds


  • Place melted butter in a large bowl Add granulated and brown sugars and mix until smooth. Stir in egg, vanilla and almond extracts.
  • Stir in in baking soda and salt, then slowly mix in flour just until the batter is smooth and comes together. Slowly mix in almonds and M&Ms.
  • Line a cookie sheet with a silicone baking mat or parchment paper. Scoop 2 tablespoon balls of dough onto the cookie sheet. Spacing doesn’t matter because you will be chilling the dough. Cover with plastic wrap and chill for at least 1 hour.
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Line a second cookie sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
  • Remove the chilled cookie dough balls from the refrigerator and space them 2-inches apart on the cookie sheets. Bake (2 tablespoon sized cookies) for 11-15 minutes, or until the edges are a light golden and the tops are no longer glossy. Let cool on the cookie sheets at least 10 minutes before removing.
