Amaretto Cookies

Then you will mix the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients until they are blended nicely. The Amaretto really makes this cookie special. If the Amaretto Cookie looks a little dry at the end I usually add another splash. I just love the smell and the taste of these cookie.


Then you add the remaining ingredients into the bowl. I mix them on low so I do not crush the cranberries.

-1 cup milk chocolate chips
-1 cup fresh cranberries-

1 cup sweetened flaked coconut
-1 cup sliced almonds


Then you need to add in the almonds, chocolate chips and the fresh cranberries


Then you want to mix them all together.


The next thing you will need to do is roll them and place them on a greased cookie sheet at 350 degrees for 12- 15 minutes.


Then you will place them on a cooling rack once you take them off the cookie sheet. You will want to make sure they are golden brown.

    OmG these look so delicious! I can’t have sugars so I am wondering what the alternative measurements would be to make these sugar free! I will have to look into that

    I like how for a cookie these are on the healthier side. With the quick oats, almonds and cranberries it makes me not feel as guilty. 🙂

    I just tried making sugar cookies with the Hershey kiss on top. Wow! I did not know they would be as good as they were! Lol

    I love the Craisins brand cranberries. I think I will try making these with Craisins and white chocolate chips. That would be a fun twist to the recipe.

    What a super recipe! It has everything I can eat, but I have to made a substitution for the wheat flour to one that is gluten free. Yum!
