1/4 of the chips in a big bag are
1 cup butter (2 sticks)
1/2 cup brown sugar (firmly packed)
1/2 cup white sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups crushed potato chips
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Lay parchment on cookie
sheets to keep the cookies from sticking.
In a freezer bag, crush the potato chips with your hands, followed by a
rolling pin.(WELL...I hardly see the NECESSITY of doing this, since
we're STARTING with crushed chips!) Measure out 1-1/2 cups of
crushed chips and set aside. In a mixer, cream the butter and sugars.
Add the vanilla and the egg until combined.
In a small bowl combine the flour, baking soda and salt. Slowly add
to the butter mixture until combined. Mix in the crushed potato chips
by hand. ( by HAND? Yuk!!)
Drop by teaspoonfulls on a prepped cookie sheet.
You should get about three dozen out of this
mixture. Bake for 10 minutes.
Take them out of the oven and let them set slightly
for a few minutes. Then carefully lift them to a wire rack to cool. They will crisp up quickly.
If you want, drizzle with some melted chocolate.
chocolate would really do wonders for them!
