Place racks in the upper and lower thirds of the oven.  Preheat to 350F.  Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper. in a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder and salt.  In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on medium high speed, beat butter with both sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes. Scrape down sides of the bowl and beaters.  Beat in eggs and extracts.  On low speed, stir in flour mixture until combined. Stir in almonds and chocolate chips. Batter will be very stiff. Spoon dough by rounded tablespoons, 2 inches apart, on to the baking sheets.  Bake until the edges are brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Switching sheets from top to bottom and front to back half way through.  Let cookies cool on sheets on wire racks for 5 minutes. Then transfer to wire racks to cool completely.  So yummy warm! Enjoy!
