There’s nothing better than a sweet and salty treat, is there? This past weekend, we attended two parties. I found this recipe at Taste of Home for Potato Chip Cookies and thought I’d give them a shot. The idea of potato chips baked into cookies sounded fun!
I was originally going to make one batch (4 dozen) potato chip cookies and take half to each party. But the entire batch got eaten at the first party, and so I made another batch for the second party, which also got eaten! People really love sweet and salty!
Many of you asked that I share the recipe, so here it is. Enjoy!
Potato Chip Cookies
- 1 cup butter-flavored shortening
- 3/4 cup sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups crushed potato chips
- 1 cup butterscotch chips
- Preheat oven to 375Â°.
- In a large bowl, cream shortening and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs. In another bowl, whisk flour and baking soda; gradually beat into creamed mixture. Stir in potato chips and butterscotch chips.
- Drop by tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Bake 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on pans 1 minute. Remove to wire racks to cool.
A couple of notes…the original recipe said to bake them for 10 – 12 minutes, which was way too long. I ended up baking them for about 8-1/2 minutes on the top rack. Be sure to do a test batch before baking them all and having overdone, burnt cookies. And next time I make these, I am hoping to use chocolate chips or maybe peanut butter chips instead of butterscotch. Or maybe even divide the dough into thirds and make some of each!
And if you’re a fan of cookies, I have lots of cookie recipes to share!
These Pretzel Cookies are another sweet and salty cookie – and a kid favorite.
