    I made these to put on my cookie tray. I thought they were really good, but I couldn't taste the amaretta at all. I might try to add just a tad more next year.

    Dough works up nicely, easy to handle, baking times are accurate (though it's kind of hard to tell just from sight if they are done). The 3 Tbsp amaretto is just enough to not be overpowering. The only odd thing is that mine seemed really dry. I know that's the nature of a cookie like this, but perhaps a little more amaretto or something could help that? I got 4 dozen making the batter as directed. Will definitely make again!

    These types of cookies are one of our families favorites. The addition of the amaretto liqueur couldn't do anything but make a great cookie even better! They mix up like a dream. I didn't THINK so at first until I continued following the directions as written , and *whew* the addition of those 3T of amaretto liqueur was just enough to make the dough perfect to work with for me. (Just for clarification , when you are doing step 3 , you really don't think you're going to end up with a workable cookie dough , but after the addition of the amaretto , it's great!) The baking times were right on for me as well. Anyway, these will definitely be going onto my cookie trays for the holidays. Excellent , thank you for posting!
