Almost Famous Amos Cookies

I’m a Famous Amos cookie junkie. Especially the no-nut chocolate chip version. That way, I could enjoy the sweet, chocolatey, buttery goodness in every bite. While it is tempting to “up-size” the purchase (100 g free for every 300 g purchased), I was disciplined enough to buy no more than 100 g each time.
Anyhow, I’ve been meaning to try out this “Almost Famous Amos Cookies” recipe for the longest time, not sure why I waited so long. Do they really taste like the real FA cookies? In my honest opinion, I would say about 80% alike. The cookies smelled great and the texture was super crunchy. However, the hint of caramel butter flavor is still a little mellow.

Let me know what you think and if you have a better recipe, I’d love you to share with me! 

 

Ingredients:
2 ½ cup (300 g) self-raising flour
8 oz. (250 g) unsalted butter – softened at room temperature
3/4 cup (150 g) dark brown sugar
1/2 cup (113 g) caster sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp coffee oil / emulsion
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup (25 g) instant oats – grind to powder in blender/food processor
1/4 cup (25 g) ground almond powder
1 ½ cup (250 g) semi-sweet chocolate chips

Makes 80 – 100 cookies (depending on the size)
