Chocolate Cloud Cookies | | A sweet, crispy cookie studded with chocolate chips and almonds. | #recipe #cookies #chocolatechipcookies #dessert

I have concluded that you and I need to make chocolate chip cookies a bit more often.

Sure, there’s those Chocolate Butterscotch Cookies we made a while back… then there’s the Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches with Nutella Cream Cheese Frosting… we also have…


I guess we’ve discussed chocolate chips cookies, or a variation of, on a couple of occasions.

But, having one more chocolate chip cookie recipe is not going to hurt. Not at all… Trust me.

Meet Sarabeth’s Chocolate Cloud Cookies.

I have made these cookies on a number of occasions, but believe it or not, they never made it to my camera. I always sent a dozen or more to my husband’s work, another dozen to my Mom, and a dozen for me!

Finally, over this past weekend, I told everyone to not come anywhere near the cookies that I was baking because they were not for us. They are to be shipped to a member of The Leftovers Club.

When I said that I was shipping these to someone else, I swear I heard thunder, and a really mean laugh to go with it … you know the one… buahahahaha… that’s the one! It was my husband! He said he would find the package and eat a dozen. Dear Laura, <—-(that’s the recipient of my cookies) please count the cookies…. there should be 24 in there. Thanks. 🙂

Servings : 36 servings
Prep Time 15 minutes
Cook Time 50 minutes
Total Time 1 hour 5 minutes


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 cups superfine sugar
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 sticks butter , room temperature, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs , at room temperature, beaten
  • 1 bag (12 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
  • 2 cups sliced toasted almonds


  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Line 3 cookie sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl sift together the flour, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the superfine sugar and light brown sugar; set aside.
  • Place the butter in your mixer's bowl and beat until creamy and smooth.
  • Slowly add the sugar mixture; continue to beat until thoroughly combined.
  • Mix in the vanilla.
  • Continue to beat for 5 minutes, or until the mixture is a pale yellow.
  • Gradually beat in the eggs.
  • With the mixer speed on low, slowly mix in the flour mixture; continue to beat until incorporated.
  • Fold in the chocolate chips and toasted sliced almonds.
  • Scoop out the dough using a 2-inch diameter ice cream scoop, and drop batter onto the prepared pans, leaving at least 3 inches in between each cookie.
  • Flatten each ball of dough with the heel of your palm.
  • Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, or until the cookies are golden brown.
  • Rap each pan on the rack 3 minutes before the cookies are done baking. This will make the cookies deflate and cracks will appear on the tops.
  • Repeat with the rest of the cookies.
  • Cool cookies on the pans.

    I understand having to fend people off but good luck with that! I want to reach into my screen.

    My husband has gotten very good about finding my hiding places. Hope these cookies make it to their intended recipient–and lucky for her!

    Your home is always filled with good food – whether it’s savory or sweet….so jealous! I want to eat few of these cookies with a good coffee… it will make my day!

  4. One can never have too many chocolate chip cookie recipes – *Bookmarked*

    If you ever have a spare dozen, just sitting around (unlikely!), please send ’em my way! 😀

    Kate, these cookies are absolutely fabulous! I LOVE the addition of the toasted almonds. Thanks for sharing! Have a great weekend! xox

  6. One can most CERTAINLY never have too many chocolate chip cookie recipes!! Love the slivered almonds in here…I’m sure the nuttiness makes the cookies even more wonderful than plain old chocolate chip!

    I love chocolate with almonds, these are cookie perfection! Plus I just love the name… I think I need one or two with a glass of milk right now! 🙂

  8. OK this made me laugh hysterically. Some of the cookies broke up a bit (your husband’s evil plan? 😉 ) making them impossible to count, but my husband assures me they are delicious. Which is kinda evil of him too. He is taking some on the plane to China tomorrow (I did give him permission), but I am enthusiastic about walking into my house after being gone for 9 days to homemade cookies. Yum. 🙂

    So what you’re saying is that these are like a cloud in that the calories float off your hips? I think that’s a good rationalization on my part haha! Love them!

    I don’t think there’s any way I’d be able to get away with making cookies and sending them to someone else. There’d be a mutiny. Especially these ones. They look amazing.

    Loving the Leftovers Club right now. I had a hard time sending out my stuff, too. My kids were none too pleased about it. These cookies are gorgeous!

    1. Does it undermine the point of Leftovers Club if I admit I made a triple batch? OK most of that was because hubby wanted cookies for his students, but still….
