home-baked cookies

Yesterday, when everyone else was probably occupied by watching tv and chatting online, I spent the day baking chocolate chips cookies for Hari Raya. This year I decided to bake instead of buying the cookies.

I got the recipe from the Internet. It was supposedly a Famous Amos recipe. How did I get it? A woman wanted to buy a Famous Amos recipe since she loved the cookies so much. She asked the worker there, "How much is a recipe if I want to buy one?" The worker said, "Two fifty". Well, then she gave her credit card to pay for it. When she got her bills, she realized it was RM 250!! That woman thought it was RM 2.50.

She threatened to give the recipe to whole Malaysia if the worker won't return back her money and they didn't. So, the woman wrote the recipe and gave it to as many people as possible through the Net. So, that's how I got the "Famous Amos" recipe. To be honest, she was kind of dumb to think that a recipe can cost RM 2.50. How can the recipe be cheaper than the cookies?

How true is it, I don't know. We can't really trust the Internet, can we? But I still went ahead with the recipe and the result: heck, it didn't look like Famous Amos at all!!! But it did taste ok but not as good as the 'real' Famous Amos cookies.

So much for trying to bake but trust me, you won't die of food poisoning if you eat my home-baked cookies. LOL!

Zaf, you should tell your friends about your cornflakes cookies pulak.Keras macam batu! If you throw them to the wall, the wall will crack. :)

But I'm sure the kids in the house will finish them up.

Selamat hari raya to all.
