  • 1/2 cup softened butter
  • 1/2 cup butter flavored crisco stick
  • 1/4 cup grated almond paste
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 tsp almond/amaretto flavoring
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 cups chocolate chips


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Cream together the butter, crisco, and almond paste with the sugars in a large bowl
  • Add in both eggs, the vanilla, and the almond/amaretto flavoring; stir in
  • In another bowl shift together the flour, baking soda, and salt
  • Mix the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients just until all is combined
  • Fold the chocolate chips into the batter
  • Drop by tablespoons or a cookie scoop the cookie dough onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet - I usually do 3 across and 4 down
  • Bake cookies for 8 to 10 minutes until they are slightly golden brown on the top
  • Remove from oven and drop the cookie sheet onto your counter or stove top to give that perfect crinkle
  • Leave cookies on the cookie sheet for 2 more minutes
  • Remove to cooling rack to cool completely
