INTRODUCTION

I have not share cookies post for quite a while and when I was shopping yesterday, I saw the Famous Amos Cookies store. I sudden have a craving for their Chocolate Chips Cookies. Hmmm, I doubt if there is any one who specifically reject cookies from this famous worldwide chain. I loved them but I do not purchase from them too often as it can be quite costly.

Since it is costly, why not prepare it at home. Cookies are cookies, the method of preparation will never far away from other cookies.  Are there any special ingredients? I do not know but since it is such a famous worldwide franchise, there must be at least copycat version of their cookies in the internet.

I searched and yes, lots of copycat recipes surfaced. I compared the recipes, and most of the recipe are basically the same.. Therefore, I just picked one recipe and prepared it.

Hmmm, outcome is satisfactory and I wouldn’t insist that it is 100% like what is sold in the stores (otherwise there will be no more Famous Amos Franchise stores) but it is close, pretty close, may be 80-90% close to what I have eaten before.

I thought it might be fun to share with all the history of this famous cookies. It is rather new and I am day dreaming that one day, I will be another Wally Amos. Lol. Per Wikipedia:

Famous Amos Copycat Chocolate Chips Cookies (山寨版之Famous Amos 巧克力曲奇)

Wally Amos, an Air Force veteran who worked as a talent agent with the William Morris Agency, would send home-baked chocolate chip cookies to celebrities to entice them to meet with him and maybe sign a deal to be represented by the William Morris Agency. Amos was from Tallahassee, Florida. On March 10, 1975, Amos took the advice of some friends and opened a cookie store in Los Angeles, California, naming it “Famous Amos”. In the first year he sold $300,000 worth of cookies, followed by more than $1,000,000 in sales in the store’s second year of operation.” (Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Famous_Amos)
