Famous Amos Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe
Adapted and modified from source
190g plain flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
125g unsalted butter, at room temperature (if using salted butter, omit salt)
110g granulated sugar
95g packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla essence
300g semi-sweet chocolate chips (you can replace some chocolate chips with walnuts or anything else you want, as long as the proportion adds up to about 300g)
1. Preheat oven to 180 degree and have ready 2 ungreased baking sheets.
2. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt onto a sheet of waxed paper, set aside.
3. In a large bowl, using an electric mixer on high speed, cream the butter till fluffy and pale yellow.
4. Add the sugars and continue beating till mixture is no longer gritty.
5. Add egg and vanilla and beat on low speed until blended.
6. Add the flour mixture and mix on low speed or stir with a wooden spoon until just blended.
7. Add the chocolate chips and the walnuts, if using, mixing or stirring until just blended.
8. With dampened hands, shape the dough into small balls and place on the baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart. (I shaped the balls to about 2.5cm in diameter, but you can pretty much have them in any size you want)
9. Bake the cookies until golden brown around the edges, about 12 minutes if you want them crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. I love my cookies crunchy all the way, like famous amos cookies! So I baked them till 20 mins until it is completely golden brown on the surface.
10 Let the cookies cool briefly on the sheets before transferring them to the racks to cool completely.
And there they are! Cookies that are crunchy and yummy with every bite! Here’s a zoom in shot, so you can see and kind of feel the kind of texture these cookies have. It’s not those type of breaded cookies like Chips Ahoy. As the name goes, its just like famous amos. So so so good. Definitely one of my top recipes! My beloved jonny boy couldn’t stop eating them, and my kids at shuqun secondary loved it!
