Amos Cookies

6 Sep

Almost everyone can bake chocolate chip cookies but I decided to use another recipe this time around. These are the sort of cookies that you can bake anytime of the year and just store them in those pretty glass canisters.

It has that similar taste to the Famous Amos cookies. Not really there but almost there… you know what I mean? Hehe 😀

This recipe is honestly for keeps, especially for me. I can foresee that I will bake more of these in the future. Great gifts for X’mas, you know 😉

So folks, I present you the Amos Cookies for your baking pleasure!


  • 250 grams butter
  • 6 oz fine sugar
  • 6 oz brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 egg white
  • 450 grams self-raising flour
  • 6 oz mini chocolate chips
  • 150 grams chopped almonds (or walnuts)


Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celsius. Roast the chopped almonds for 8 – 10 minutes. Set aside.

Beat the butter until fluffy. Add both sugar, vanilla essence and eggs. Mix thoroughly.

Stir in flour, chocolate chips and roasted chopped almonds. I scooped half a tablespoonful of the cookie dough and placed them on a baking tray about an inch apart from one another. Gently pressed down with your fingers, or a fork if desired.

Bake for 15 – 20 minutes.
