If you could only choose one flavor to put in your cookies and sweets for the rest of your life, what would it be? Vanilla? Hazelnut? Coconut? Lemon?

Mine would be almond. Almond extract is totally intoxicating to me. Sometimes I go to the pantry just to sniff the bottle. That’s not weird…right?

I remember the first time I made my favorite sugar cookie recipe, it called for almond extract. I scoffed and was all, “pffft. I’m using vanilla.” I did that for years until one day, I tried almond extract. And I was hooked. Addicted!

I love putting almond flavoring in just about everything, which is why I wonder why it took me so long to discover Amaretto liqueur. I know I’ve had it in things before but a few months ago I finally bought myself a bottle and promptly made fudge with it.

The problem with using actual Amaretto in desserts is that the treats become adults-only. This is something that my daughter is NOT happy about. If I make treats, she expects to have one or seven.

When I saw that International Delight made Amaretto Coffee creamer, I was instantly hooked. I could have amaretto for breakfast and no one would be the wiser? That’s pretty genius, if you ask me.

In typical Dorothy Recipe Creation fashion, I decided to make 100 actual things before I made even one. Cake! Cheesecake! Cookies! Pie! Candy! Cookies!

My mind was All. Over. The. Place. trying to decide what to make with the Amaretto Coffee Creamer. I had plans to make some sort of elaborate baked concoction and then it decided to become summer in May in Sacramento. It’s been in the 90s for what seems like weeks now. I did NOT want to turn on my oven.

The obvious decision was to make no bake cookies. Obviously!

I’ve never made no bakes before. I’ve eaten them plenty and seen them around the internet. (Most recently, my BFF Aimee made some peanut butter ones…OMG!)

All of the no bake cookie recipes I saw use milk as one of the ingredients. So…why not substitute your favorite flavor of coffee creamer instead?

Is anyone else smacking their forehead right now and saying, “Oh the possibilities!!???” Because I am!

To make the cookies, you cook together butter, sugar, creamer and flavorings, and then add in some quick cook oatmeal. That’s the binder that gives the cookies their oomph. Make sure it’s quick cook oatmeal – or it will be raw and probably somewhat unappetizing!

I also added almonds to mine (duh, amaretto!) and some sprinkles. The sprinkles give the cookies some color. Otherwise they’re just a little…brown. And besides…sprinkles= happy!

  3. Almond extract is totally intoxicating to me, too! And I don’t even ‘love’ almonds. I made a cake last week with almond extract and I wanted just sniff that cake :)

    Great thinking with these cookies! I bet they are delish!

  4. Love these cookies….. no bake…… bonus! I would definitely put coconut flavoring in all my treats!
    Emily ~SoDomesticated~ recently posted..Artichoke and Sun Dried Tomato Pizza…My Profile

  5. I love almond extract too! I was an organic chemist, and one of my chemical smelled exactly like almond extract. Although no one else seemed to like it, I really looked forward to the days where I could use it! (That’s probably a LOT stranger than you smelled the bottle in your pantry…)

    You’re so creative! My mind jumps all over the place too when I get new ingredients to play with. (My brain turns into Tigger with caffeine — crazy!) Cant’t wait to read about your Amaretto coffee creamer cheesecake! :)

  6. These are so cute! I love the sprinkles, the simplicity, and the scrumptiousness! (sorry, I needed another “s”) No bakes are perfect for warm weather. And am I ever with you on new ingredients tormenting my mental capacity. If only we could make a little serving of all our ideas!

  8. I love using coffee creamer in cookies. I’m a total creamer stalker at the grocery store, looking for new flavors to try. If you love Amaretto, I have an AMAZING Amaretto Dip. It hasn’t gotten posted yet, but I’ll let you know when it does. It’s so good.. I usually end up eating half of it while putting it together. :)

  19. I’m a total coffee snob and only drink my coffee black, so creamer is not something I have around my house nor have I really ever had any desire to buy. But I’ll totally buy some if it flavors no bake cookies!
    Faith @ Pixie Dust Kitchen recently posted..Blueberry Cupcakes with Chocolate FrostingMy Profile

  20. Peanut butter. That’s the flavor I would add. And I don’t drink coffee but I may need to buy this creamer just for these cookies

  25. Dorothy these look so cute with the sprinkles. I’m the same with almond extract, you are not alone. I think it comes from my marzipan addiction
    Tash @ The Velvet Moon Baker recently posted..Spiced Chocolate Orange Loaf CakeMy Profile

  26. Oh my goodness Dorothy! Amaretto AND sprinkles! Genius!
    Trish – Mom On Timeout recently posted..Your Creative Timeout Party {No.81}My Profile

  27. I just read that you haven’t tried marzipan … how about almond paste (like in a bear claw pastry)? Marzipan is basically sweetened almond paste! As a fellow almond lover … your cookies sound amazing!

  28. My nan loves amarretto next time she is in the states I will have to make these for her!
    Elizabeth @ Confessions of a Baking Queen recently posted..Triple Chip CookiesMy Profile

  29. That is the best looking no bake cookie! I love that you used coffee creamer in them…oh, the ideas are rolling through my head now!!! And the sprinkles are the perfect touch!!!
    Jocelyn @BruCrew Life recently posted..Peanut Butter Snickers Cheesecake Brownie PieMy Profile

  30. Mmmmm….these sound yummy! I don’t drink coffee but I use this in oatmeal. I have kids who went from not eating oatmeal to asking for seconds! I also like it in cocoa.

  31. Yummy! I don’t drink coffee, but the coffee creamer flavors always call to me! Love the idea of using them in cookies.
