ramadan kareem. =) it's been a habit, for me to have one type of kuih raya to eat during ramadan. usually, it's the tat gulung nenas. but, i can't find my tools and lost the recipe... (the one that taste like mama's tat gulung). so, this year, i tried chocolate chip cookies. and searched for the famous amos recipe, (i don't think it's the real recipe, but the effort and the outcome is kinda satisfying). made this one week before ramadan, and by 1st ramadan there's like 1/4th of the jar left. hee hee.. and when i made this, all supermarket are out of chocolate chip cookies, so this chocolate chip cookies doesn't have chocolate chip in it, and still taste awesome.
2 cups butter
4 cups flour
2 tsp. baking soda
2 cups granulated sugar (u should use less, because it'll be very sweet)
2 cups brown sugar
5 cups blended oatmeal (measure n blend in blender to a fine powder)
24 oz. chocolate chips (680gm)
1 tsp. salt
18 oz. cadbury bar (grated. YES you HAVE to grate them) (510gm)
2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. vanilla
3 cups chopped nuts (of your choice)
cream the butter with both sugars. add eggs and vanilla. mix together with flour, oatmeal, salt, baking powder and soda. add chocolate chips, cadbury bar and nuts. roll into balls and place two inches apart on a cookie sheet. bake for 10-15 minutes at 190 celcius. makes 122 cookies.
p/s: i halved the ingredients, without chocolate chip, ends up with 70++ cookies.
