The first batch I left in balls as they dropped off the spoon and they were a little "doughy" in the center. The second batch I flattened and baked at the reccommended time. The 3rd batch I flattened and then forgot about when I got a phone call! It turned out WAY better. They were in for almost 25 min. and golden brown around the edges. Fantastic! Read More

I found these to be quite bland, with virtually no flavor whatsoever...salty or sweet. Perhaps for a childs palate they are fine, but wanted to take them to a charity event for adults. Glad I tried them out first. Read More

I make these cookies every Christmas. I have added a twist though that my children just love....after the cookies have cooled, I dip half of each cookie in melted dark chocolate and additional crushed up potato chips. They are a true crowd pleaser! :) Read More

I have never tried potato chip cookies but decided to make these to use up 3 small bags of chips that no one wanted. I was a little skeptical because of the simplicity of the ingredients and becuase the dough turned out very soft and buttery. I baked them until golden around the edges and they turned out really good. Just a delicious simple cookie nothing extravagant. Just a note the dough doesn't seem to spread much during baking so you want to flatten them before baking. Also I used a little more than 1.5 cups of potatoe chips and it turned out fine (I didnt want to throw away any leftovers from the bags). Read More

how can anybody call this bland? do you have taste buds? i do bake at 325 as i find the butter tends to brown too quickly. when i tell people about potato chip cookies i get strange looks. however when they taste one they want the recipe. Read More

I had this cookie for the first time when I was in grade school back in the late 1960's. I was amazed that the salty-sweet taste and texture reminds me of shortbread. This recipe turns out perfect both in taste and texture. It's become a favorite of my grandchildren. This is a true heirloom recipe! Read More
