Apricot Amaretto Chews

Rating: 4 stars 14
Chunky and chewy cookies...a delicious mouthful! Almond extract may be used in place of amaretto. In dough use 1/2 tsp almond extract and 2 tsp of water in place of the amaretto. In icing use 1/4 tsp almond extract and enough water to get the correct consistency in place of the amaretto.
