Apricot Amaretto Chews

Apricot Amaretto Chews


"Chunky and chewy cookies...a delicious mouthful! Almond extract may be used in place of amaretto. In dough use 1/2 tsp almond extract and 2 tsp of water in place of the amaretto. In icing use 1/4 tsp almond extract and enough water to get the correct consistency in place of the amaretto."

I think those who found these spread too much were using real butter. It melts faster than shortening or margarine. Cookies made with shortening or margarine are thicker and often chewier than...
