“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 those made with butter. I made these with margarine and they came out fine.

This cookie was excellent. It was hard to eat just one. I toasted the almonds before chopping and adding to the recipe. Also used almond flavoring instead of amaretto. They disappeared. Will definitely be making again.

Great cookie!! My first pan came out a little flat so I had to add more flour(about 1/2 c. more) for them to puff. Nice taste and texture.
