Years ago,  many of us who were afflicted
 with the chocolate lover's gene, witnessed
 a phenomenon of
Famous Amos and his
 wondrous cookies!

Although Famous Amos -- as I understand
 it -- used the 'Ambrosia Chip' (which still
can be bought at Smart & Final in large
 quantities)... I have a sentimental love
for the Nestle' chips.

What famous Amos did to folks like me
was to open our minds to the possibilities
of natural combinations in cookie making.

So, what better thing to do than to mix
 the three most popular ingredients in cookie making: peanut butter, oatmeal and
chocolate chips?

So, when I finally ended up in Nestle in
the late '70's, I spent my time in the
 test kitchens... hoping to sell the idea
of these wonderful combinations.

My cookie is more cake like... it doesn't
land like a thud on the floor of your
 stomach... I hope you enjoy it!
