Almost Famous Amos Chocolate Chunk Cookies








OMG!! Perfect perfect chocolate chip cookies recipe so far!! we are so so in love with the taste, texture, sweetness of these cookies.. bake it longer if u wanna crispy type.. bake it for 10mins if u prefer a little chewy type.. either one.. this recipe is definately a keeper..







Well ok what are u waiting for?? go and bake it right now babes and you know what.. its much more fun to bake cookies if u hv a monster aka hb in ur kitchen who likes to munch on the dough and kept on saying it tastes like Ben and Jerry ice cream.. lol weirdo!! muuuahahha



Ingredients
250g salted butter,softened (i used SCS)
200g light brown sugar
1/4 tsp salt (i didnt add)
1/2 tsp coffee oil (obtained from Sun Lik, this is the one that gives the cookie its distinctive fragrance and makes prople wonder,hmm what is that? but they usually cannot tell what it is)
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup oats,processed to bits in a chopper (i used nestum)
1/4 cup ground almonds
1/2 cup of your favourite nuts,chopped finely (optional)(i used whole hazelnut.. toasted)
1 pack of Nestle Tollhouse semi-sweet chocolate chips OR chocolate chunks (don't use cheap chocolate chips,the flavour is compromised)
300g self-raising flour (i used plain flour with 1/2tsp of baking powder)







Method
This is the most important step,at least 2 hours before,or the night before,beat the egg with the vanilla and the coffee oil to infuse or you can do this the night before,refrigerate it then bring it to room temperature before baking.

Preheat oven to 160C.

To the softened butter,beat in the sugar and the salt to combine. Beat in the egg and stir in the processed oats,ground almonds,optional chopped nuts and the chocolate chunks. Sift the flour and fold it in,this dough will not be too stiff but not too wet either.

For small cookies,place half-tsp of the dough,spaced slightly apart on the cookie sheet and bake for 9 to 10 minutes.

For large cookies, place rounded tbsp of the dough spaced apart on the cookie sheet and bake for 20 to 22 minutes.

Cool completely and let it sit overnight in an airtight container,this is for the flavour and fragrance to develop further.
Eat one freshly made and one the day after,there is a difference!

Yat Maria said...

Yat

ilah manaf said...

hee hee ... coffe oil tu ruper dia camner namer ... tak pernah nampak pulak? ... with coffee oil wat else eh kiter boleh buat?

somuffins said...

Rima, as usual I cant refrain from copying a good recipe, haha. Tq.

Nak tanya sket. How much does a 250gm SCS butter cost in Spore? or did you but it in JB? It costs almost RM9 in Msia.

Al-kisah, when I was 18 yrs old, it cost $.95-1.05 aje. What's the connection bet. my age and the price of butter? Hehe.. ;-)

Rima said...

Yat
I am just like u.. to me baking cookies ni consumed time sikit.. macam buat kek lapis but ah bila part part munching tu.. malas nak cakap ah lol

Ilah
Coffee oil tu rupa nye macam vanilla essence.. u can use on lots actually.. coffee cakes ke.. or add to melted chocolate ke.. just abt anything actually.. if u tak fussy u can get it in ntuc but ah sun lik punya ade oomphhh heheh

Somuffin
Sebuku SCS cost abt $3.80 kat sini.. abt the same ah kat m'sia.. i think its a control price tak..

Hmmm I dont remember pulak SCS cost that cheap.. dulu dulu my mom if bake cookies or cake selalu guna butter cap tong or buttercup.. i started baking when i was 15yrs old.. butter sponsor by mother of cos hehehe

Ain said...

agak2 eh....on Saturday...ada harapan tak cookies ni masih ada??....ekekekek....

pssstt...Saturday got wat food?.. :D

Rima said...

lahhhh Ain.. lain kali mesti nak cepat chop tau.. nasib baik ade lagi 5 keping kat botol.. i keep for u ok :op

Wat food? u hv to cook urself leh if u want to makan hehehhe

Ditya said...

Hi Rima,

I am just a silent reader of your blog. I really adore all your recipes, baked goodies, and blog stories.

Yesterday evening I baked this almost amos cookie. It was super duper yummylicious :) Thank you for sharing this superb recipe with all of us. All the ingredients are the same as yours, except I reduced my sugar to just 100g and I used the Hershey's semi sweet choco chips. I still find it sweet. Maybe next time I will try this again with valrhona chips :).

Rima said...

Ms V
Ty for leaving footprints and am so so glad u gave this recipe a try.. my hb's fav cookies and yes its a little sweet but he loves it.. anyway i've tried using valrhona and its super uber nice too hehe

Rima said...

Hawa
Congrats congrats.. cookies ni memang my hb punya hot fav.. ni pun dah mintak lagi..

I like both but kan since recently i baru buat that marble cheese brownies masih boleh terngiang lagi kesedapan brownies yg tu

hawa said...

Heheee...MCB mmg sedapp! I x didnt hv the coffee oil! Out of stock in the shop so I sub to coffee emulco...It was really nice still! Next time I'll try wif coffee oil ...
Normally I like the crispy cookies but for this one I love when its less crispy so the taste it's just more....yummy n chewy!

Anonymous said...

K.Rima,
I can't find any coffee oil here in KL, dah puas saya cari Shah Alam, Selayang, Ampang semua takde. Bagus only sells Orange oil and Lemon oil.I asked KG can i replace the coffee oil with orange oil. She said it'll be orange choc chip then. She suggested to replace with cappucino paste,i already bought it but I'm not sure how much to put.I feel like ordering it from you the next time you come to KL.Maybe you can pass it to KG so I can collect it from her. next time not now :).appreciate if you could advice. Thanks K.Rima.

Rima said...

Actually kan i had wanted to add coffee oil in my store.. dah ade pun cuma belum letak sticker ajer and bec i was so so busy sampai tak sempat nak update my store..

Coffee oil memang susah nak dapat kat sana.. will put up coffee oil in my store soon

Anonymous said...

K.Rima,
Alhamdulillah, that's a good news to me :) tapi coffee oil ni halal kan? I risau betul sekarang ni, mcm2 brands detected non-halal. OK will check it out. Thank you and Selamat hari raya to you and family.

Nurul said...

Rima said...

Nurul

Rima said...

cik tudung senget

Rima said...

Shafaleena
Sorry for my late reply and ty for coming to this humble blog of mine.. hmm u pakai garfu tak .. u hv to use two forks in order for ur cookies to look rustic.. the round round tu macam tak cun sikit lah :o)

shafaleena said...

Hi Rima,
Please don't say sorry, reply jer whenever you can..alamak! How to use 2 garfu yer? You reckon i find it in youtube or joyofbaking? Aiyo, me clueless lah..

Rima said...

hehe u take one garfu on ur right.. another one for ur left hand.. dah tu cucuk pakai two garfu then u angkat and terus letak kat atas baking pan.. ahhh dia memang harus ade sememeh look baru boleh nampak like ori famous amos hehe

shafaleena said...

Rima,
So size wise nanti lain2 lah yer? I think kena physically try then can know kot..*hehehe*

Angeline said...

Hi Rima,

Kalau resipi ni i tak add baking powder ok tak? sebab i nak buat macam double choc-chip cookies punya shape and the choc topping.
Thanks for your reply.

Rima said...

Angeline
hmmm actually if ur purpose of not putting baking powder cos u dont want ur cookies to kembang all u need to look after is when u cream ur butter? dont cream it far too long or ur cookies akan mengembang ..

Angeline said...

Hi Rima,

Thanks for your kind reply and i will try to do it. I already try your bangket susu and its superb ! Do a second batch yesterday. Thanks for sharing great recipe.

aida said...

salam Rima,

i dah try resipi ni....sedap tapi nak tanya camne actual texture cookies ni ye?
dia bersarang ke?

mine cam lembut and fragile tekstur dia...
wlaupun bakar lebih untuk crispy tapi bila gigit tu dalam dia cam soft

tq

Anonymous said...

Hi Rima, your cookies look so yummy that I can't wait to try it out! but if I dont want to use ground almond can I replace with something else or leave it out? and u think I can cut down butter to 200g? bf doesn't like buttery smell/taste. yah, I know, weird right!? :p

thanks! -Jes

Rima said...

Aida
hmmm if u bake longer its more to crispy .. not soft type..

Rima said...

Hi Jess
I hv not tried baking it with lesser butter but i guess u can op the ground almonds and add more flour into it.. ground almonds gives it more taste while nestum gives it more crunchier..

rahyan said...

Kak Rima, i wud like to try out this recipe but the coffee oil I see contains propylene glycol. Do u knw whr I can get halal ones?

Rima said...

If u cant find one in ur place.. u can replace it with coffee paste or essence.. i dont know where ur at but the ones in sun lik was said to be halal

ili said...

kak rima, cookies ni kalau simpan dalam air tight container tahan berapa lama ya? -ili

Rima said...

illi
lama jugak... my hubs kadang terlupa i baked him cookies and he letak kat dalam cabinet.. after a month baru dia perasan.. so am assuming tahan lama lah kan cos if i bake it untuk rumah.. benda nye tak sempat nak bernafas.. cepat habis hahaha

ili said...

kak rima.. this recipe is definitely a keeper. sangat sedap! btw nak tanya.. kalau kita dah mixkan ingredients dia, blh tak kita simpan for later baking? cthnya adun siang, mlm @ after midnight baru bake? blh ke? simpan dalam fridge dulu? TQ :)

Anonymous said...

Salam Ramadhan Sis Rima...

Saya budak baru :)
Sis nk tanye, u juak coffee oil tu x?? Da cari 1 KL....xjumpe2 lagi.

Rima said...

Illi

Rima said...

anonymous i am only replying cos i know u wanna bake this cookies.. i hv seen it in kl but the colour is totally different.. mine is dark brown while the ones i saw in bangsar was white.. i do sell coffee oil in my store tho

Unknown said...

Hi Rima Babe (photos say so),
I'm usually a lurker but couldn't resist dropping a few lines here when I saw this recipe.I love CCC and your recipe for the Amos clone is almost the same as the one I arrived at after numerous attempts trying to bake a decent tasting CCC. From experience I know these golden nuggets will end up addictive for all those trying out your recipe. Did you come up with your ideal formula through trial and error or was it based on an pre-existing one? Either way you're a big-hearted dame to share all your tried and true culinary secrets with us. Thanks for being so generous.

miza said...

As slm k rima,

i've tried this sedappppp giler recipeee.hehe siap buat 3 adunan sekali harung.mmg gamble giler.tp the result mmg walllaaa.x sbr tunggu berbuka smlm nk rs the cookies.hehe.tq akak for the luvly recipe n yet simpe to share with us..coffee oil i berjaya beli di bakewell kat sri gombak.:-)

Anonymous said...

Hai aunty rima.errmm, satu adunan ni dpt brapa or it depends on size yg kita nak?
Farahin,

Rima said...

It depend on how small or big the size of ur cookies... tak pernah kira pulak hehe

Aliaa said...

Hi Rima,

Can I substitute the butter with margarine? If I use margarine, the measurement still the same?

N yes i found coffee oil here in KL :) but its in oil form. I mean, oil oil. hehe..

Thanks, Lia

Rima said...

Hi Lia
errr yeah but this cookies is best with butter.. so if u can.. stick to butter yah..

i hv seen it bef.. the coffee oil in malaysia is in oil form lol

Anonymous said...

Hi Rima, I would like to bake this cookies but I can't find both coffee oil & Nestlé Tollhouse semi sweet chocolate chips. I'm living Muar, a small town, all the baker shops here selling those chocolate chips without brand. How can I order from you?

Charlotte

Farrah said...

Hi Rima,

Tried this recipe so many time.. memang marbeles n the taste memang mcm famos amos. Cuma i perasan famous amos cookies lagi airy. Sebab apa yer??

How to achieve this airy testure? By adding corn flour? or maybe adding 1 tsp baking powder instead of 1/2 tsp?

Izzati said...

if you dont use coffee oil, what will happen?

mama4A's said...

salam.. saya dah try recipe ni.. tapi sy takde coffee oil.. so tak bubuh.. n choc chips pun takde .. so sy cincang2 jer almond hersyey's... mmg cookies nie sedappppppp! 2 hari dh licin.. tq for the great recipe!!

-<@ * Liana * @>- said...

As Salam sis, nak cuba resipi ni untuk biskut hari raya. Leh tahu untuk adunan ni leh dapat berapa keping cookies ya? :-)

Rima said...

I really hv no idea how many pcs i can get with one recipe.. i usually will get lots..

~mimi~ said...

Thanks sis for this recipe!

been tried lots of choc chip recipes since 4 years ago. Yours is the best I must say! Almost famous amous lah. Hee, but I used coffee emulco because I couldnt find coffee oil here.

Anna said...

Hi,
I tried baking the cookies today, I'm going for the small cookies, left them in the oven for over 20mins but still the inner is soft.. Do you have any idea why it's not cruchy? Is it because the oat is over chopped?

Thanks.
Anna

Layla said...
