Copycat Famous Amos Choc Chips Cookies Recipe

The boys and I, we are cookie monsters. We love cookies especially those crunchy and buttery ones.

I have a friend who bakes really delicious chocolate chips cookies and though she was very generous to share the recipe with her close friends, I do not feel right to share it here as it is her family’s ‘secret’ recipe.

I continue searching for good recipes out there that can be shared with our readers. I searched high and low until I came across this recipe in a baking group on Facebook called Bakings’ Corner. Do check it out if you are into baking as there are endless recipes being shared in there.

Ayden and I tried baking according to that recipe for Chinese New Year and were very happy to get almost similar tasting chocolate chips cookies like my friend’s as well as THE famous Famous Amos choc chip cookies.

This copycat Famous Amos Choc Chips Cookies is THE ultimate chocolate chips cookies recipe.
