Potato Chip Cookies

Posted in : Dessert, Waste Not Want Not on by : Nicole

It’s a funny thing – when the hubby and i run a conference, we end up with random leftover stuff. Like a box of snack size chips – but only the flavor no-one wanted… plain lays…

Again – off to the internet for a solution. I had heard of people making potato chip cookies, so i researched a ton, and it came down to 4 different recipes and finally I combined 2 to get to what i thought was a great result. The main recipe was from martha, but i wanted to have some chocolate in there too!

Crushing all the chips is kind of fun and  a great stress reliever

Rolling the balls of cookie dough in the crushed chips is weird. 

Pro-tip – wet your hand to roll the dough

Whala! Definitely go for the  10 minutes, they don’t spread too much, so there is room for those extra 2 at the bottom!

  6. 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  7. 1 teaspoon baking soda

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat together butter and sugars with a mixer on high speed until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. Add vanilla and eggs, and beat on medium speed until just combined.
  2. Add flour, baking soda, and salt, and beat on low speed until just combined. Stir in 2 cups potato chips and the chocolate chips.
  3. Roll dough into 2-inch balls, and then roll balls in remaining potato chips to coat. Place cookies 2 inches apart on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Bake until golden, 10 minutes. Let cool completely on baking sheet.
Notes
  1. Definitely didn't need the full 3 cups, 8 little bags were enough - and that was only about 2 cups.
  2. The results are greasy!
