Steph's Choc Chip Pecan Cookies

Dav wanted me to try baking Famous Amos Cookies. What a challenge. So I went in search for its recipe and found several similar recipes. Here’s the  ingredients and instructions.

2 cups butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 cups flour
2 1/2 cups oatmeal, blended to powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
340g chocolate chips
100g nuts (your choice, I used pecan), chopped


  1. Preheat oven at 190C
  2. Cream the butter and both sugars
  3. Add eggs and vanilla, mix evenly
  4. Fold in flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder, and soda.
  5. Add chocolate chips, grated chocolate bar and nuts. Mix well (I used my hands in a food grade plastic bag, as it is too thick for my mixer).
  6. Roll into small balls (around 1 inch in diameter) and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet/tray.
  7. Bake for 10 minutes at 190 C.
