Potato Chip Cookies

If you’re looking for healthy and nutritious, I suggest you skip this post! But if you’re looking for amazing flavor, read on.

Having a surplus of potato chips after a birthday party, I wanted to put them to good use and I remembered a cookie I had bookmarked from Baking Bites. These cookies have amazing crunch and a fantastic salty sweet flavor.


Potato Chip Cookies
(recipe from Baking Bites)

Makes about 40 thin cookies and about 25 thick, chewy ones.

2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Salt
1/2 cup Butter, softened
1/2 cup Granulated Sugar + 1/2 cup Brown Sugar
1 large Egg
1 1/2 cups Potato Chips, crushed fine (I didn’t crush them too much but I will next time)

Combine the dry ingredients (flour, salt, baking soda). In another bowl, cream the butter and sugar. Add the egg and whisk together very well.

Mix the butter mixture with the dry ingredients. Fold in the crushed potato chips.

Shape into balls (about the size of a small lemon). Drop the balls onto a baking sheet and flatten them out a bit. Bake for 12-15 minutes (12 minutes for chewy and more for crispy cookies). Cool completely on a wire rack.


Here are some other cookie recipes from this blog: Snickerdoodles, Peanut Butter Cookies and Chocolate Chip Cookies.

    I’ve seen this recipe before but have not tried it. I can’t imagine not liking it. I dunno why but Seinfeld comes to mind, would he say something like “Whats not to like..it’s a cookie with chips in it!”

    When my friend told me about fried papads dipped in bajji batter and refried, I thought that was unique, and now you come up with something that is even more stunning:)!! But I can imagine the crunch in the cookies, and baking is so much better than refrying – must have tasted great!
