Chocolate Chips Almond Cookies

Very tempting to try out this "so call" Famous Amos Cookies from M4M website. Thanks to one of the members who shared his recipe with clear steps on making this wonder cookies. The ingredients are rather straight forward and you need some grated Gula Melaka which one of the key ingredients. Besides that I replace chocolate chip and nuts with 1 whole block of Cadbury Almond Chocolate as I have run out of chocolate chip and I can't find Macadamia nuts around.

Ingredients: (make about 60 50 cent coins cookies)
Item A: Process/Rub the following together thoroughly
175g Self-raising Flour
50g Rice Flour
25ml Corn Oil

Item B: Cream Till Fluffy
100g Unsalted Butter, cut into small cubes
50g Light Brown Sugar
50g Gula Melaka( finely minced/grated )
75g Castor Sugar
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 Tablespoon Kuhlua

Item C: Whisk In
50g Milk Powder
1/2 Egg

Item D: Stir In
125g chopped nuts
200g chocolate chips
Flour Mixture

1. Cream butter and all the sugars until combine then add in the rest of Item B and continue until light and fluffy.
2. Next whisk Item C till combined then stir in Item D and Flour Mixture.
3. Leave the overall mixture cover in the fridge for about 20-30 minutes.
4. Preheat the oven to 170 degree and shape the cookie dough on a tray lined with baking paper.
5. Try to leave some spaces between each cookies so that their won't stick together during baking.
6. Baked for 15 - 20 minutes or until golden brown, remove from tray and cool on baking rack.

- The cookies will feel soft when removing from the oven, don't worry about it. Just leave it on the rack to cook to room temperature and they will be crispy

I don't have rum, brandy nor whiskey at home so I replace it with Kahlua (coffee liquor)


  1. Hi Lena,

    I am interested in trying your chocolate and almond cookies. I am a first timer trying to bake cookies, would like to know what is 'kuhlua' and where can I get it from? I have tried Phoon Huat, but they don't seems to know about this ingredient.

    Please can you reply this via my email address.

    Thank you and regards
