|This is no joke!|
I had to try this recipe for myself. I chose to make half "regular" and half with the addition of chocolate chips. I found these cookies to be a buttery delight and for once I was able to enjoy the entire batch practically by myself. I'm not so sure I should have just admitted that... My husband who I should start referring to as the Cookie Monster goes crazy for cookies. If he's around when I'm baking cookies I can plan on half the dough being gone before it even gets in the oven. This time though he liked them at first but then the smell got to him and he couldn't bare putting a cookie in his mouth that smelled so much like a potato chip. That left me to enjoy them and I did. I would love to hear if you try out this recipe and what you think of them.
Potato Chip Cookies (click here for printable recipe)
*This recipe makes 4 dozen cookies
2 cups (4 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
3 ¼ cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 ½ cups coarsely crushed potato chips (I used Ruffles)
Preheat oven to 300 degrees
In a large bowl cream the butter and sugar. Add the vanilla and then the flour, mixing until well blended. Stir in the potato chips and mix well. (If you want to try it with chocolate chips then you would stir them in at this point)
Drop by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart on a cookie sheet. (No need to grease it, but I used parchment, I always use parchment). Using a fork flatten each cookie a little (I didn't actually do this part and they turned out great). Bake 20 – 22 minutes or until light golden brown around the edges. Let stand 5 minutes then remove to wire rack to cool completely.
