Does anyone remember Famous Amos Chocolate Chip Cookies when they were hard to find and exotic? They were bite size, crunchy cookies that for me had just the right amount of everything. Gosh I loved Famous Amos when I was a kid.

ROLL THE COOKIE DOUGH INTO BALLS

  • Now that I’m back on the Weight Watchers wagon (deep breath), I made these cookies half the size Rose suggests, so in the end I made (42) 1” cookies (4 WW points for each tiny cookie!!!) (very deep breath). I weighed out 15 grams per cookie—about the size of a Canadian Toonie (and a Famous Amos).

  • WHAT ARE THE ALPHA BAKERS? Here’s how it works: once a week, for the next two years, 25 Alpha Bakers commit to baking their way through every recipe of Rose Levy Beranbaum’s newly published The Baking Bible. Each week we post our experiences on our blog sites: our successes, our failures, our likes and dislikes. The recipes are scheduled in advance so that everyone will be baking the same recipe at the same time. Unfortunately, no recipes can be shared in my Alpha Bakers posts due to publishing restrictions, but if you love to bake, The Baking Bible. is a must-have book. You can see other tutorials for the same recipe at the following link The Baking Bible Alpha Bakers at http://rosesalphabakers.blogspot.ca/.
