"These cookies are tender, crisp, buttery lusciousness. I've made some other cookies that incorporated potato chips, but I think these score big. For those of you who've never tried cookies with potato chips as one of the ingredients you're missing out. It gives them a "Je ne sais quoi" goodness. They are ever so easy to make as well. All my guests loved them when I served them last Christmas."

Incorporate the dry ingredients into the butter and sugar mixture until just combined.

Step 7

Bake for 12 minutes or until the edges are nice and golden. Store in airtight container.

Daily Inspiration

These cookies are so tasty and they turned out beautifully. I may not have crushed up the chips as much as I should have, but I like the texture just the way it is. These cookies have been tested on hubby and he gave a thumbs up -- so I know the grandkiddos will love them on the cookie tray I made them. : )

Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe FEM. These cookies were perfect. Amazing texture and flavor. They were so easy to make and with ingredients always found in the pantry. A scary prospect. I can see these often in my future. They were a great addition to the Christmas platters this year. Made FYC tag game.
