    I guess I was expecting this to taste like a Famous Amos cookie. No where even close to it. It's an ok cookie, kind of blah for me.It was to cakey for a proper choc. chip cookie. It tastes absolutely nothing like a Famous Amos.  -  06 Jun 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is an awesome recipe. They really do taste like Famous Amos cookies. It's also a kid-friendly recipe. My 8 year old had no problem/or questions while making this recipe. Good thing it makes a large batch.  -  20 Mar 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
