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!

What would your favorite International Delight flavor be? What would you use in your no bake cookies?

If you love International Delight as much as I do, you should go fill out a flavor profile and enter to win some fabulous prizes in their What’s Your ID? game going on now. You would win a Visa Gift Card, a coffee prize pack, or ID for a year! What are you waiting for?

If you’re as in love with almond as I am, these will be right up your alley.

Amaretto makes me happy. Wait…that sounds bad… 😉

  1. with liquor does not make it adults only.the alcohol burns off when you cook/bake it leaving only the flavor.

  2. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so
    much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    I think thaat you can do with a few pics to drive the message home a bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog.
    An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.

  3. OH yummy!! Found your blog through Pinterest while looking for your coconut cream pies in a jar recipe and got totally side tracked! NOW off to find the recipe!

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