Chocolate Chip Potato Chip Cookie

I know you think all I make are snacks and desserts. It’s true I do love a good gooey dessert and sometimes I make a dessert that I’m just simply craving. Most of the time though, when I make desserts I’m making them for a party or function or event that someone has asked me to make. They’re usually for my boys activities eight out of ten times! That’s perfectly fine with me, since I need to cook and they a snack!

Today I made a sweet and salty cookie. For a long time I didn’t understand the salty and sweet phenomenon. Now, I totally get it. Salty and sweet are the perfect yin and yang.

I’m not a chip eater, but I imagine this would be the perfect way to use those last crunched up chips in the bottom of the bag. Unless, you like eating those last bits with a spoon. I can’t imagine how else you could eat them.

I haven’t shared a chocolate chip cookie recipe with you, but every body and their Momma has a chocolate chip cookie recipe. I wanted something different. You deserve it. Speaking of chocolate chip cookies, did you know that Americans eat 7 billion Chocolate chip cookies each year? That, my friend, is a lot of cookies. There’s probably 1 million different chocolate chip cookie recipes out there! And, now there is one more 🙂

A few things when baking cookies

  1. Use a silicon mat. I use a Silpat brand. Besides being easier to cleanup, using a silicone baking mat allows the cookie to ‘grab’ onto something as it cooks. This aids in making a thicker, softer cookie which I like.
  2. Use a quick-release scoop to get all your cookies the same size. Not only will they look more professional, they’ll cook more evenly.
  3. Cool your cookie sheet between cooking each batch. A hot sheet makes the dough begin to melt before getting into the oven, which makes them bake unevenly. They’ll tend to have thin crisp edges and thick, under-cooked centers.
  4. Freeze batter and cook later.

I used a 2 tablespoon quick release scoop for these cookies. I baked them at 350 degrees for 9 minutes. Cool the cookies on the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. The cookies will firm up as they cool.

Store baked cookies in an airtight container! Review my tips in the post about storing un-baked cookie dough.

    Okay you may be right—I might have met my favorite cookie. What is fun about this recipe is making people guess the
    secret ingredient. It will be interesting to see how long it takes. Lol. I will also be interested to see how the texture turns out. And wow that is a boat load of vanilla. So that is going to make a major impact. It made me remember a former client from eons ago who only baked chocolate chip. He swore the secret was to use like 3 times the recommended vanilla.

    Will the cookies come out just as well if I use regular potato chips and not ruffle potato chips?
