Almondy Warmth Cookies

Recipe by  

"I was pleasantly surprised when my late night sugar munchies concoction tasted fabulous. They're cake-like; barely crisp around the edges and so soft inside that the center will literally melt in your mouth. Mom called them the best cookies she'd ever tried. You should try them."

I was very suprised at the nice texture of these cookies. I normally am not a fan of "cake like" cookies, but these were incredibly tender and flavorful. Very easy to prepare, and the batter stayed in place while baking. I added flaked almonds which added crunch, and added nicely to the flavor. Kudos to you in your late night cravings and the successful recipe!

Sorry, I already rated it with five stars because it looks great (and a mother's opinion is generally right :P). I haven't made it yet, but I'm only 15, so I was wondering if it's okay to make it without the bourbon and liqueur?

These turned out really good! I didn't have nutmeg, so I used 1 t allspice instead. I also used vegan sour cream, and vanilla-nut extract instead of the bourbon. I also added some white and dark chocolate chips. Very yummy!!!

These were yummy, I did find them very greasy though--didn't even grease the cookie sheet and it was coated. I did use butter instead of margarine so not sure if that had a lot to do with it. The almonds have natural oil so I think I would cut down on the butter next time. Mine also flattened out a lot more than at least the pictured ones, this is I'm sure due to the butter. They are not cake-like at all, but more like a chocolate chip cookie consistency--a little crunchy and a little chewy. This was good and I would definitely make again.
