They're also ideal for bringing to a potluck as they travel well and cater to a variety of tastes.

They couldn't be simpler to make, either. It starts with a basic creamed butter mixture which is then blended with just the right amount of dry ingredients to give them a wonderfully light texture. The combination of chocolate chips, chocolate chunks, and slivered almonds give these cookies the ultimate mix of sweet, nutty, and crunchy with every bite.
