My sweet tooth got the better of me today. I wanted cookies and badly. I had a pouch of sugar cookie mix and several ideas for a "new" cookie. Here is what I came up with.
Chocolate Chip Almond Cookies
1 Pkg Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix
1 stick (1/2 cup) of butter, melted
1 tsp almond extract
6 oz Ghirardelli dark chocolate chips
Mix the first four ingrdients until well blended. Fold in chocolate chips. Drop onto parchment paper lined cookie sheet and bake at 375* for 8-10 minutes.
