Famous Amos Chocolate-Chip Cookies

Don’t you just love how Famous Amos cookies bring back all the wonderful memories from our Singaporean childhood? I used to eat it so often, and passing by any Famous Amos outlets just causes me to drool from the delicious aromas that swirl around the shop.

A few weeks ago, I did a Google search for a recipe from Famous Amos, and I found one! So I’m sharing this copy-cat recipe, for us all to share the fats and revel in the yummy goodness.



1) 1/2 cup white sugar
2) 1/2 cup brown sugar
3) 1/2 cup butter
4) 1/2 cup vegetable oil
5) 1 egg
6) 1/2 tablespoon milk
7) 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
8) 1/2 teaspoon salt
9) 2 cups self-raising flour
10) 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
11) 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


1) Thoroughly cream sugars, butter, oil, egg, milk and vanilla essence
2) Add the dry ingredients, including the nuts and chocolate chips, to the mixture in step 1, and mix well till a homogenous texture is achieved
