Potato Chip Cookies

A while back I signed up or a free subscription of Martha Stewart magazine. In every issue I love to see what the Cookie of the Month is. This month is Potato Chip Cookies. I love to bake and I've never heard of a Potato Chip cookie so I just had to try them. I tried to find the recipe on the Martha Stewart magazine website but it wasn't posted there yet.

What you need is:

2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs
2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 tsp course salt
4 cups coursely crushed salted potato chips (about 10oz), divided
1 cup pecans, toasted and coarsely chopped

1. Preheat the oven to 375*. 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 nuts.

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, 18 to 20 minutes. Let cool completely on baking sheet. Cookies can be stored in an airtight container up to 5 days.

As soon as they were cool I had to devour test them out. They are crunchy and awesome and definitely don't taste like potato chips. I used a combination of lays and ruffles because that's what I had on hand. I'm sure that somehow that breaks some rule. Shhh...

  6. Wow...these are crazy! I bet the sweet salty combo is good...just like a payday!

    1. They were pretty good. If I made them again, I'd make the pieces of chips a bit smaller. It definitely doesn't taste like chips though. :)
