Almond Cookies I

Reviewed: May 8, 2010
If you are having a case of "i need a sweet treat" these cookies ARE NOT for you. I liked how these cookies weren't very sweet, but you are obviously wanting a sweet treat if you are baking cookies. You could try adding more sugar to the recipe if you'd like.I made these cookies with my sister. We baked the first half of the dough and the cookies came out raw in the center after 8 minutes of baking in a preheated 400 degree oven just like the recipe says. The dough was extremely sticky so we ended up having to add more flour to the second half of the dough before we baked it. We switched the amaretto liqueur for pure almond extract which gives a better flavor. My suggestion would be to just add 1 teaspoon of almond extract if you want to use it instead of the amaretto.After we tried baking the second half of the dough although the the cookies were throughly baked they were too chewy in the center. CAUTION: the cookies stay in the same form you put them on the baking sheet. The first time around i just dabbed them on the cookie sheet and they stayed in the same shape after they were ready. The second time around i had to flour my hands and form the dough into balls then i gently flattened them out with the backside of a spoon.Overall they were decent but i would not make them again.
