Are these Famous Amos cookies? No. Almost Famous Amos? Maybe. Hmm...I don't think anyone can bake exactly the same Famous Amos cookies. There are many copycats and I have not tried one that tastes like Famous Amos. Some are quite there, more often than not, you can tell they're not the real thing. This recipe doesn't make the closest taste either. But it is good,! Crunchy and very addictive! Thanks goodness, I can make a ton out of this!
Eating these bite sized cookies are like snacking on potato chips. It is hard to stop!This recipe is tweaked to make it less sweet, so there is no need to reduce the sugars if you're baking them. Recipe taken from Facebook baking group.

The Answer to Anxiety
Friends, let us not let worries rob us of our strength. In Matthew 6;25-33 Jesus condemns worry. He says worry is foolish and shows a lack of confidence in the person,character, and ability of God.
"Therefore I tell you,do not worry about your life,what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes?
