Another "Famous" Cookie

the cookie dough

roll into ball and flatten

tis are using teaspoonful drops

Hubby was asking for home-baked cookies, saying that I didn't replenish the 'stock'.. Took the chance to disturb him for complaining about the unhealthy snacks due to the amount of sugar used. LOL.. So fun to 'argue' in a healthy way sometimes..
Anyway, this time I wanted to try another recipe from Crissie Lee in MFWL. And a shifu from MFWL added cinnamon to it. The cinnamon really makes the smell from baking them so familiar. I feel like I am walking pass a Amos shop. The taste is not really 100% there but at least there is about 80%. Whatever the taste is, it is still great if you don't compare it to the famous brand.
It was a last min decision since the topic of 'replenishing' came up during lunch and being a DUTIFUL Wife, I had to fulfill my hubby's request. I substitute it with purely Brown Sugar instead of a half-half combi if brown and white.
