I've a cookie recipe calling for Tuaca. Could I use an equal amount of almond extract? Should I use less?

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.
Amaretto tastes like almonds.

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!
