Famous Amos Double Choc Chips Cookie

My big kids gave a BIG thumbs up for these irresistible yummy nutty chocolate fragrant double chocolate cookies ! They said really tasted like FA cookies !

As shared, I usually don't have the mood to bake cookies unless during festive seasons like Christmas, Chinese New Year etc. etc. And I rarely munch cookies like Danish butter cookies or chocolate chips cookies. But I was very fond to indulge those expensive imported assorted cookies from Marks & Spencer. There was one store in the heart-land mall and I'd waited and grabbed some of those good deals "clearance stock" with soon to be expired shelf live cookies. Since it had moved-out many years ago, I hardly travel to town to shop or buy these delicious cookies. My kids' generation don't really know about Marks & Spencer.  But they do remember that mom had bought them very delicious assorted cookies with attractive packaging ... many years ago. Of course, they know the Famous Amos cookies ! With many outlets easily spotted in most heart-land malls, big shopping malls etc. My kids love these cookies ... ha ha! but they couldn't afford and would just buy a small packet once in a blue moon when they have saved a little extra pocket money.

So when I asked "shall I bake some chocolate cookies, like Famous Amos kind?"
Instant reply: YES!!! But must really taste like FA, ok!

Special thanks to Esther & Victoria for sharing this wonderful chocolaty cookies.
