I know, weird, right? That's what I thought, too. I like cookies. I like chips. Why not give it a try? These cookies are super buttery; they remind me of shortbread. And that, my friends, is a good thing.
Potato Chip Cookies
from The Spiced Life
1 c. unsalted butter, softened
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. coarse salt (optional--depends how salty your chips are. I left this out, but probably would add it next time, if using the same chips.)
2 c. flour
2 c. coarsely crushed potato chips, divided
coarse salt and sugar for sprinkling
Preheat oven to 325. Line your cookie sheet with parchment or wax paper.
Beat butter and sugar until fluffy. (Add salt if using.) Mix in vanilla, then flour and 1 c. potato chips. Mix well to incorporate chips, but don't overmix.
Using cookie scoop or spoons, shape dough into 1" balls and roll in remaining crushed chips. Put on the cookie sheet 2" apart, and flatten slightly. Sprinkle salt or sugar over the top (both are good, but I preferred those with salt on top). I fit 12 cookies on my first sheet and 10 on the second.
Bake for 12-15 minutes at 325. These cookies don't really brown. Let cool 5 minutes on the cookie sheet, then transfer to a rack to cool completely.
