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.
