My mom came to visit for the 4th of July weekend, and one of the first things she asked was if I had ever had potato chip cookies. Of course my immediate response was “Mom, potato chip cookies? Are you sure? That sounds ridiculous.” A few days before my cousin Carol had given some to my mom to try, and now my mom could not stop talking about them. After my mom whipped up a batch for me, I was hooked too.
My cousin Carol’s recipe:
~2 sticks unsalted real butter, softened (trust me on this)
~3/4 cup sugar
~2 teaspoons vanilla
~1 and 1/2 cup all purpose flour
~1 cup crushed potato chips (I used regular Lays)
~1 cup chopped nuts (I used pecans)
~1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1) Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2) Mix everything together. I used my Kitchenaid mixer on the slowest speed.
~TIP: Don’t be tempted to melt the butter! I didn’t realize real butter takes longer to melt than the tub kind, and the texture of the dough did not turn out right–sometimes my impatience gets the best of me. But at least you can learn from my mistakes 😉
3) Line a cookie sheet with foil. I chose not to grease mine because I figure chips are already greasy enough. Either use a scoop or spoon to drop the cookies on the sheet. I was able to get 27 cookies out of my batch.
4) Bake for 12 minutes.
Let me know what you think!
Thanks for stopping by!
