Assalamualaikum,

That sounds yummy, I'll try it out today inshallah when and if I get the time.

Just a couple of questions:


Do you know if the maple brown sugar breakfast thingy can be found in the UK? Is it okay to use normal porridge oats? or rolled oats?

Also:
1 cup chocolate chip cookies

do not you mean chocolate chips?  Smiley


Wassalam,

peace be upon you

sorry, i corrected the ingredients, you are right it is chocolate chips *not* cookies.

instant oats or quick oats will do fine.  not sure if quaker instant oats are available in the uk. 

here is a link on how the product looks

BTW, Jannah, you can freeze this dough too.  wrap it in waxed paper then in a freezer bag. you can precut before freezing.

take care

I don't think we can get the Nestle Toll House cookies here in the UK, I couldn't find it in Sainsbury's.... I didn't even get that joke in Friends when Monica's trying to replicate Phoebe's grandmothers cookies till I found out about the whole Toll House thing (I don't know if anyone watches Friends here).

Assalamo Ailkum.
Is all purpose flour what here in the UK is known as self raising flour or plain flour...It mentions a batter, so would you have to spoon it on to baking tray rather than slice beforhand.
Thanks a lot.
Salaams.

I used plain flour. 

you can slice or spoon batter onto the baking tray, whatever works for you.

Wa'alaikumussalam warahmatullah,

Jazakillahu khair, Umm Aboodi. Been craving for Famous Amos choc chip cookies. So... I made 2 batches of them (see how much I trust your recipes Wink ) yesterday.

I gave most of it to my husband who went off for a dinner invitation (just spreading the calories around Smiley). As for the rest - me and my friend and our kids finished it. My friend reckons its the real McCoy Smiley

We all loved it, alhamdulillah.

Only thing I changed was the oats. I used Nestum sachets instead.
I don't find the dough stiff. Just regular cookie dough consistency. Allahua'lam.

-----------------

I still crave for Famous Amos.. why don't they have it in Canada?
