If I don't want to buy amaretto just for this recipe, can I substitute some almond extract? if so, how much?

I think I would start with 1/2 teaspoon and taste the batter. If you buy Amaretto, you'll find lots of yummy things to do with it !

Another alternative is to buy the Amaretto in one of those mini "airline size" bottles. BevMo carries them as well as some liquor stores.

Yes Kacia, you can use almond extract, but not more then about 3/4 of a teaspoon.
