Copy Amos Cookies

I wanted to try to bake some Famous Amos Cookies since my kiddos love them (yes, myself too!), so googled a bit and found this recipe that looks quite good.  Gave it a tried last night, and:

1. Doesn't look like it at all, not even a bit :(
2. I was hoping to find my kitchen fill with the FA aromatic smell, but nah.  To be fair, yes, it smell nice but far far far from the distinctive FA smell..
3. It taste decent, probably a bit like the FA, but seems more like coffee chocolate-chips cookies to me.
4. Texture is the only thing that did not let me down, really crunchy!

Ok, it did not failed like a burnt cookie, just not like a real FA.  And I took a bit of short cut...I infused the coffee oil with the egg for less than an hour and I used only a little bit of processed oats. Anyway, it taste pretty good, so I want to jot this down in my little recipe library.  And, I shall named it Copy Amos!

Actually doesn't look that bad..

Packed some for my colleagues and they like it!
