Ingredients

    1 cup sugar
    ½ cup unsalted butter
    2 TBS amoretto
    1-1/2 TBS sour mash whiskey
    3 large eggs
    1 cup chopped almonds
    2-1/4 cups flour

Preheat oven to 350. Butter 2 cookie sheets. Shape dough into three loaves; 2 inches wide & ½ inch thick. Space well apart on cookie sheet. Bake 20 minutes until loaves are puffy & brown.

Cool on wire rack until you can easily handle them. Cut each loaf into diagonal slices about ½ inch thick. Lay on cut sides & toast for an additional 15 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool.

Melt chocolate chips in the top of a double boiler with shortening, stirring frequently. Once thoroughly melted remove from heat & cool until candy thermometer reads 85 degrees. Hold each cookie by the bottom and dip in chocolate. Turn over immediately and allow to dry, uncoated side down on wax paper.
