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
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 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)
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!
