Amaretto Cookies

Amaretto Cookies are simple cookies bursting at the seams with flavor. These easy to make cookies are one of the best quick easy desserts recipes out there. Bake this cookie in just minutes.

  • 1/2 cup margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons almond extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  1. In a large bowl, with electric mixer, beat margarine with sugar until well blended. Add egg and extracts and beat until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes.
  2. Add flour and salt and beat until well combined. Mixture will be crumbly. Turn mixture onto lightly floured surface and form into a ball. Wrap and refrigerate at least one hour.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Using floured rolling pin, roll 1/2 of the dough on a well floured surface until slightly less than 1/4 thick. Cut into shapes using well floured cookie cutters and arrange about 1 apart on ungreased baking sheets. Repeat with remaining dough.
  4. Bake 12 minutes until the edges are lightly golden. Cookies should not brown. Let stand one minute. Remove cookies to wire rack and cook completely.
  5. If desired, glaze cookies with 1/2 cup confectioners sugar, 1-1/2 tsp water, and 1 drop food coloring. With pasty brush, brush tops of cookies with sugar mixture, then let dry before storing in an airtight container.

Makes very good crisp cookies. Hold a shape or mold very well.

For delicate orange cookies, substitute 2 teaspoons orange extract for almond extract.

For quick cookies, dough can be kept in refrigerator until needed. Roll out and bake as above.
