Triple Nut-Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Mmmm.  Just the right texture.  I love these cookies!  They are adapted from an old recipe in a handwritten file of recipe cards from various people who gave me recipes 25 years ago on my wedding day.  I don't know where this recipe originated, but this is the first time I've used it in many years. Delicious.

Triple Nut-Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

2 cups flour 
1/2 teaspoon baking soda 
1/4 teaspoon salt 
1 1/4 cups packed dark brown sugar 
1 1/4 cups granulated sugar 
1 cup butter, softened 
3 large eggs 
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
1/2 cup natural cashew butter
3/4 teaspoon almond extract

teaspoons vanilla extract
1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Mix dry ingredients and set aside. On medium speed, in large bowl, blend sugars. Add butter, mix till grainy consistency. Add eggs, nut butters and vanilla extract. Beat till fluffy. On low speed, add flour mixture until barely mixed into butter mixture. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop by rounded tablespoonsful, 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet. Use a wet or flour coated fork to gently press a crisscross pattern on top of each cookie. Bake until the edges of the cookies are lightly browned, approximately 10-12 minutes or until done. Don't overcook. Remove to cool on a flat surface.
