I don’t know about you but I don’t know anyone who doesn’t like cookies or chocolate or both combined. Definitely not me, I could be easily called the cookie monster, however, I am not, Thank God! Smile.

Difficulty Level: X Easy ____ Intermediate ____ Advanced
Servings: It renders approx. 20 cookies depending on the size of your cookie cutter
½ c. unsalted butter at room temperature ($1.10)
1 egg (.16)
1 tbsp. Amaretto Disaronno Liquor ($1.45)
2 ¼ c. all-purpose flour ($1.20)
1/8 tsp. kosher salt (.10)

1 ½ tsp. baking powder (.10)
1 c. semi-sweet chocolate morsels to dip the cookies when done ($1.25)
Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
Line a cookie sheet pan with parchment or wax paper, or butter it.
In a large bowl cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
Add egg and amaretto and mix well.
In a separate bowl sift to mix together the flour, salt, baking powder.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet butter mixture, mix well although you are looking for a dough texture that is not soft but rather thick. Is ok, it will work out.
Sprinkle powdered sugar lightly over the counter top that you will work the dough.
Cut a small amount of the dough and roll it into an approximate ¼” thick.
Use your favorite cookie cutter, cut the cookies and transfer to your cookie baking pan.
Bake for approximately 7-10 minutes, depending on your oven. Remove when they start to get golden brown.
Allow them to cool down before dipping into the melted chocolate.
For the chocolate, follow the melting instructions in the morsels bag. Dip them in chocolate and place in a wire rack to drip the excess chocolate until the chocolate is hard enough to handle the cookies.
