{Recipe} Almost Famous Amos Chocolate Chip Cookies

I am usually not a fan of cookies, but when i saw this recipe with such an attractive title, I had to try it out :)

Baked these for the house-mates and juniors on the first day of school :-)

 This recipe is quite interesting as other than the usual flour, butter, eggs, sugar, interesting ingredients such as almond meal, oat flour and coffee oil are used.

Almost Famous Amos Chocolate Chip Cookies
 adapted from here

250g salted butter, softened
140g light brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp coffee oil
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup oats, processed to bits in a chopper
1/4 cup ground almond
1/2 cup of your favourite nuts, chopped finely
chocolate chips 300g self-raising flour 
1. At least 2 hours or the night before, beat egg with vanilla & coffee oil to infuse. If done the night before, refrigerate & then bring it to room temperature before mixing. 

2. Preheat oven to 190C.
3. Beat butter, sugar & salt to combine. 

4. Beat in egg and stir in the processed oats, ground almond, chopped nuts (if used) and the chocolate chips / chunks. 

5. Sift flour and fold it in. 
 6. For small cookies, place half tsp dough, spaced slightly apart on the cookie sheet and bake for 9 to 10 minutes until brown.

7. For large cookies, place rounded tbsp of the dough spaced apart on the cookie sheet and bake for 20 to 22 minutes until brown.
8. Cool completely before serving.  To allow the flavour and fragrance to develop further, store cookies in an airtight container overnight before serving.


Verdict? Not even close. Hahahaha it does not have the distinctive fragrance and definitely not as addictive as Famous Amos. Sigh :( I did enjoy the chewy oat chunks though!

It was slightly dry and I would try baking it for a shorter time if I ever attempt this recipe again :)

Still a pretty good recipe! Glad everyone liked them and it was all gone in a day :')
