One day I was making cookies for a party and then when I went to get the vanilla extract I noticed there was none. All out. Of course my mother was not willing to take me out and get some, and I had to make due with what I had. Yes here it is: almond extract!!!!!! It actually came out really really really good. It tasted exactly like a normal cookie would only it had the tiniest hint of cherry flavoring. (Because to me almond extract tastes and smells like cherries). So here is the recipe just like your typical recipe only substitute the vanilla with almond!  Have fun! And eat up!

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

1 cup (2 sticks, 1/2 pound) butter, softened

3/4 cup granulated (white) sugar

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

1 teaspoon almond extract

2 eggs

2 cups (12-ounce package) NESTLE TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels

1 cup chopped nuts

COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl. Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large mixer bowl. Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition; gradually beat in flour mixture. Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon onto ungreased baking sheets.

BAKE in preheated 375-degree [Fahrenheit] oven for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

PAN COOKIE VARIATION: PREPARE dough as above. Spread into greased 15"x10" jelly-roll pan. Bake in preheated 375-degree [Fahrenheit] oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan on wire rack.

FOR HIGH ALTITUDE BAKING (>5,200 feet): INCREASE flour to 2 1/2 cups; add 2 teaspoonfuls water with flour; reduce both granulated sugar and brown sugar to 2/3 cup each. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit, drop cookies for 8 to 10 minutes and pan cookies for 17 to 19 minutes.

almond is a nice twist indeed!

This would also be really good in chocolate cookies with chocolate chips and candied orange peel.

good substitution idea... eyeing how low my vanilla is...

Oooohh, yes, Almond extract tastes and smells like cherry to me too!!  I think that sounds so good.  I am going to try it.
