You should use less extract. If the recipe calls for 2 tbl Tuaca I would use just 1 teaspoon of extract

I don't think that Tuaca tastes like almond. It's more of an orange flavor.

Aah thank you! I don't know why I've always thought it was almond.

Tuaca isf lavored with orange and vanilla, so toss in some vanilla extract.

The recipe already called for vanilla, so I just left the tuaca out and added a little water to make up for the moisture. They turned out great even without the tuaca. Thanks!
