Ingredients

2-1/4 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Combine four, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, with mixer at medium speed, beat butter and sugars until creamy. Beat in eggs, amaretto and extract. Reduce speed to low; beat in flour mixture just until blended. Stir in chocolate chips, coconut and almonds. Drop dough by heaping measuring spoons on large, ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden around edges. Makes about 4 dozen.
