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 haven’t shared a chocolate chip cookie recipe with you, but everybody and their Momma has a chocolate chip cookie recipe. Therefore, 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 are probably 1 million different chocolate chip cookie recipes out there! And, now there is one more 🙂

Chocolate Chip Potato Chip Cookies  Tips

  1. First, use a silicone mat. I use a Silpat brand. Besides being easier to clean up, 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. Next, use a quick-release scoop to get all your cookies the same size. Not only will they look more professional, but they’ll also cook more evenly.
  3. As well, 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, undercooked centers.
  4. Freeze batter and cook later.

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.
