Potato Chip Cookies


Come on, admit it … when you saw the title of this post you probably thought “What??” and were more than just a little curious. I know when I saw these cookies in a recent issue of Cuisine At Home I was intrigued the moment I saw the title. Potatoes aren’t generally a common ingredient found in cookies or most sweet baked goods, for that matter. So I absolutely needed to give them a try.

These cookies are awesome! There’s no other way to put it. They’re just awesome. I already loved the idea of a sweet/salty combo. That always gets my attention. These cookies have finely crushed potato chips in the batter and then get a second round of salted crispy taters folded in before baking along with some chocolate chips. The combination of the crisp, salty potato chips balances so nicely with the semi-sweet chocolate chips. These are the type of cookies that you won’t be able to stop munching on.

Enjoy!

1/2 teaspoon table salt

3/4 cup butter, softened

    omg. i LOVE the sweet/salty combo. I need to put this on my to-make list asap!

  2. I am one who did not think, ‘WHAT?’ because I have a recipe for them too and LOVE them. My recipe on the blog are from an old cookbook and are without nuts or chips (although I have started to include toasted pecans…yum) and rolled in powdered sugar but either way what I love is that something so old is now new again…it’s that salt business isn’t it. SO good.

    I have to tell you that every time I visit family in Florida I bring back a box of chocolate-covered potato chips! Heaven! The cookies look so good but I would be afraid that I would be addicted in one bite. Okay, I have to try them. Great recipe!

  5. These definitely look like the kind of cookie I wouldn’t be able to stop munching! Yum.

  6. It is funny, I loved the post right away, these cookies look delicious! I love the idea of mixing the sweet and salty together:-) Hugs, Terra
