Potato Chip Cookies
Yup, you read that right. We were skeptical, too, but after just a few batches we knew that these had loads of sweet, salty, crunchy, delicious potential.
Why This Recipe Works
They were conceived by potato chip companies decades ago in an effort to boost sales, and the salty-sweet morsels have stood the test of time. Surprisingly, we found that these buttery cookies are best when made with low-fat potato chips, and a rolling pin makes quick work of crushing them. For texture, we use both granulated and confectioners sugar in equal parts to get the best balance of shortness and chew.
