Potato Chip Cookies

Memorial Day weekend is almost here! If you are looking for a little something different for your weekend barbeque, I suggest potato chip cookies. Yes, I said potato chip! The cookies were not sweet enough for my taste, so they're also great for someone who prefers more savory desserts. Everyone will go for the great texture and crunch the potato chips bring, though. My version of the recipe is below, and you can see the whole recipe and inspiration for the cookies at smitten kitchen. I only made a dozen since I wasn't too sure I would like them. There is no egg, so the recipe is easy to scale down.
What's the most unusual ingredient you have put into a cookie?

1/2 cup butter, room temperature
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup chopped pecans
1/2 cup crushed potato chips

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream together butter and sugar. Mix in vanilla extract. Add in flour and mix well. Stir in pecans and potato chips.
Drop tablespoons of dough onto cookie sheets and bake 15 minutes until lightly golden.
Yields 1 dozen.

  1. potato chips in a cookie? I would never have guessed! As I have a sweet tooth I have a suspicion I may not be a fan of these but I wouldn't mind trying!
