Thick and chewy Almond Amaretto Chocolate Chunk Cookies! These are so flavorful and one among the simplest cookie recipes we’ve ever made. If you're keen on almonds and chocolate, you've got to undertake them!

The only thing better than chocolate chunk cookies? Chocolate chunk cookies that are LOADED with crunchy almonds and spiked with amaretto liqueur!!!

Today’s new cookie recipe is really adapted from my “internet famous” beurre noisette bourbon pecan chocolate chunk cookies. The most changes I made were swapping out the bourbon for amaretto and using sliced almonds rather than pecans. 

But I also added flavorer to the batter. And increased the quantity of amaretto therefore the flavor would really shine. But aside from that, the recipes are quite similar. Don’t they appear fab?!

Almond Amaretto Chocolate Chunk Cookies

INGREDIENTS :

  • 2 sticks (8 ounces) unsalted butter, melted until browned
  • 2 and 1/3 cups all-purpose flour (don't pack the flour into the measuring cup!)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract 
  • 3 Tablespoons amaretto 
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 12 ounces semi-sweet OR dark chocolate, roughly chopped into chunks 
  • 4 ounces sliced almonds 

INSTRUCTIONS :
For the Brown Butter:

  1. Place the butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat and cook for about 3 minutes – stirring almost constantly – until the butter has browned. Pour the brown butter into a heatproof bowl, being sure to scrape all of the "toasted" bits into the bowl as well. Place the bowl in the refrigerator for 2 hours, or until the butter is at room temperature. You’ll know the butter is at room temperature when you press a finger into the top and it makes a slight indentation. It should not be liquid at all.
  2. Once the butter is at room temperature, you're ready to get baking!

For the Almond Amaretto Cookies:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees (F). Line two large baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside until needed. 
  2. In a large bowl combine flour, salt, and baking soda; whisk well to combine then set aside until needed.
  3. In a large bowl using a handheld electric mixer, or in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine browned butter and both sugars and beat on medium-speed until light and fluffy; about 2 minutes. Add in the almond extract and amaretto and beat until combined. Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating for 15 seconds after each addition. Turn mixer off. Using a wooden spoon or sturdy rubber spatula, gently fold in the flour mixture, stirring only until the flour begins to disappear. Fold in the chocolate chunks and sliced almonds. 
  4. For extra thick cookies, chill the dough for at least 2 hours (and up to 3 days) before baking. Or bake right away for regular cookies (they'll be thinner but still delicious!!!). 
  5. Roll 3 tablespoon sized scoops of dough between your palms to form a ball (they should be big; almost a 1/4 cup), then place on prepared sheets (make sure to leave enough room in between each cookie for inevitable spreading). Continue this process until all the dough has been rolled. 
  6. Place baking sheets in preheated oven, one at a time, and bake for 9 to 10 minutes, or until golden at the edges but still soft in the middle. Repeat with all cookie dough. Let cookies cool for 10 minutes on the baking sheet before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
