A few months back a friend of mine emailed me a cookie recipe that combined crushed up potato chips with chocolate chip cookies and dared me to make them. I said I would definitely try them, because they sounded crazy, but then promptly put them on the back burner. Waaaaaay back.
Chocolate Chip Potato Chip Cookies (Adventures of a Yankee Kitchen Ninja)
(yields 24 cookies)
2 sticks butter, soft
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup crushed potato chips
2 cups flour
3/4 cup dark chocolate chips
1/4 cup sugar
2 TBSP crushed potato chips
2 tsp kosher sea salt
Preheat oven to 350F.
In a small bowl, mix together the salt and crushed chips for the topping. Set aside.
In another small bowl, measure out 1/4 cup of sugar for rolling.
In a large bowl mix together the sugar and butter until soft and creamy.
Add the vanilla and mix until smooth.
Add the potato chips and flour and blend well.
Mix in the chocolate chips.
Scoop out the dough into TBSP sized clumps and roll them into balls (you should get exactly 24).
Roll the balls in the sugar and place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Using the bottom of a drinking glass, gently flatten the balls onto the cookie sheet.
Sprinkle each cookie with a little bit of the chip/salt topping.
Bake for 15 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned.
Cool on a wire rack.
