it takes me about 5 minutes to name today's post. i wrote one, then i erased it, and it keeps going on for 5 minutes until i finally decide to name it "famous amos' chocolate chip cookies". to be honest, i think it still sounds wrong for me because it's not famous amos' real recipe. it's almost. or maybe it's the real famous amos' recipe? man, this is really confusing.
i found this recipe around the blogging neighborhood. there was a story behind this recipe and not only story but also a controversy whether it is true or not. ha ha. i don't really care, what i care is that this cookie taste extremely amazing and unbelievably delicious. i got this recipe from Biskuit Raya through Mbak Regina's blog. she was a member of KBB and has so many great recipes in her blog. this recipe has been so famous since i haven't started blogging and i never thought i will finally make this.
the reason why i made this cookies is simply because i miss famous amos. famous amos has became quite rare here in West Jakarta. fortunately, about 2 weeks ago i went to my favorite supermarket here and find a kiosk that sells famous amos' cookies. love it so much. the only thing that stop me from buying a lot of it is because of the super expensive price. so i guess it would be a waste if everytime i want to eat that cookie, i have to spent that much money. that's why i give that recipe a try and found out that it really really resembles famous amos, both the texture and the taste. try this and i bet you'll think thrice on buying famous amos again.
following Mbak Regina's version
115 gr butter, cold and cut into cubes
100 gr caster sugar
90 gr brown sugar
1/2 vanilla extract
100 gr oats, grind to a fine powder, sieved
125 gr plain flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
150 gr almond, coarsely chopped
150 gr milk chocolate chips
90 gr milk chocolate bar, finely grated
- cream butter and sugar in a large bowl until light and fluffy.
- add in egg and vanilla, beat until well combined.
- add in flour, salt, oat powder, baking soda, and baking powder. mix until just combined. do not overmix as the cookies may become hard in texture.
- add the chocolate and nut mixture, mix until just combined.
- leave the dough in the fridge for about 20 minutes.
- preheat the oven to 180 degree C.
- lay a baking paper on the cookie sheet.
- take about 1/2 tsp each of the mixture and put on the cookie sheets. leave the dough ball stay high so that it will become crunchier.
- bake for about 10 minutes.
- return the remaining dough to the fridge while waiting for the batch to come out from the oven.
- cool on the cooling tray.
- store in airtight container.
that's all for today's post. you really have to make this once you read this. lol.
