Betcha Can't Eat Just One

According to most people, you're either a sweet person or a savory one. You either crave cookies, or you crave chips. So what do you do if you fall somewher in between? What do you do if you crave both chips and cookies? If you're looking for an answer to that question, then today's your lucky day. I've actually discovered a recipe for potato chip cookies! That's right, the best of both worlds in one tasty snack. For the recipe,


Potato Chip Cookies
From Real Simple magazine, May 2005

1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1/2 cup granulated sugar, plus 1/2 cup more for coating
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
3/4 cup potato chips, crushed
1/2 cup pecans, chopped

  1. Heat oven to 375F. Cream the butter and 1/2 cup sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer on high speed. Lower to medium speed and add the vanilla.
  2. Add the flour and cinnamon to the butter mixture. Beat on low speed until incorporated. Fold in the potato chips and pecans.
  3. Form into approximately 1 1/2-inch balls. Dredge in the remaining sugar.
  4. Place on parchment- or foil-lined baking sheets, 2 inches apart.
  5. Bake until golden brown around the edges, about 13 minutes.
  6. Let cool on sheets for 5 minutes, then transfer to wire racks.

Yield: Makes 2 1/2 dozen

I have made these for years - they are excellent. You don't really taste the chips - they just make the cookies crispy and salty.

In Hawaii we used to have a sort of cookie/candy snack that had mac nuts and crushed potato chips held together with chocolate. They were really good!

I've had chocolate-covered potato chips, and they were quite good. So, I'd give this a shot...

Both at the same time? Maybe. In the same food? Not so much.

I don't think these would be very good for you. I wouldn't make them for my kids.

I sometimes crave both, but I crave salty stuff much more often. I don't have much of a sweettooth at all.

no thanks-does not look appetizing..when i crave both, i find that chocolate dipped pretzels satisfies..

While I do like both chips and cookies I think this sounds gross. I'll stick to eating either one or the other, but not both.
