A friend of mine makes amaretto cookies. I thought it might work with acorns. I totally screwed up the amaretto recipe, but the cookies taste amaretto-like anyway. Recipe: 2 cups acorns (leached and ground to flour), 2T ground pecans, 2 eggs, enough flour and sugar to make the dough stick in balls. Flour to sugar is about 2:1. Roll into balls and then roll in sugar. Mush out with a pecan on top. Cook at 300 degrees for an hour. We basically didn't use the furnace today thanks to the acorn processing and cookie making, and there's been a 40°F windstorm all day.
