Potato Chip Cookies

I know. Its sounds weird. Potato chips in cookies. But I promise you, scouts honor, it is really good. Its definitely more of a salty treat than a sweet one, but the sweet and salty combo, combined with the chewiness and added crunch, makes for a great cookie! I wanted to try something new and interesting that wasn't just a normal chocolate chip or oatmeal cookies. Low and behold, Martha Stewart did not disappoint me. The only thing I changed was that I used Bob's Red Mill GF flour instead and added 1 tsp of xanthan gum as well. But obviously you can use normal all purpose flour. I am actually not a huge cookie fan ( I like fruity things and chocolate) but I thought I would try something new :) Anyway, enjoy! xoxo






INGREDIENTS

  • 2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup packed light-brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup pecans (3 3/4 ounces), toasted and coarsely chopped (optional)

    4 cups coarsely crushed salted potato chips divided
  • DIRECTIONS


    1. Preheat 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 balls using 1/4 c dough per ball, 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 minutes. Let cool completely on baking sheet.
