Potato Chip Cookies with Chocolate Chips

We are still off on vacation in Orlando, Florida and today my twins dance team will perform at the 2012 Dance Worlds Competition at Epcot. Please say a little prayer for their team to do their personal best, that's all we can ask for!!!

I know you will all enjoy these delicious cookie recipe (I am probably wishing I had some homemade cookies right about now... 3 days away from my kitchen at home... oh no!)  I love just whipping up a batch of fresh cookies (plus we like to freeze extras for later too!). These are not what you expect, they are such a good Chocolate Chip Cookie, they are light and airy and taste fantastic. I still have a few of these left in the freezer, which would be wonderful to eat right about now as I am writing this post.

Who would of thought to add a little bit of Potato Chip Crunch to Chocolate Chip Cookies; Genius! Just Genius! I am telling you, that YOU MUST, trust me, you MUST make these. You will be pleasantly surprised. DE-LI-CIOUS!!!

Potato Chip Cookies with Chocolate Chips
found at Buttercream Barbie, original recipe from Country Living "Iowa State Fair Cookbook"

3/4 cup butter
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
2 cups crushed plain potato chips
1 cup chocolate chips

Heat oven to 350. Beat the butter and sugars together, using an electric mixer set on medium-high speed, until light and fluffy. Reduce speed to medium and beat in the eggs and vanilla. Reduce speed to low and mix in the flour, oats, salt, and baking soda. Gently stir in the potato chips and chocolate chips.

Drop the cookie dough using a cookie scooper or by the tablespoonfuls, about 2 inches apart, onto ungreased baking sheets (these cookies do spread). Bake for 14 to 16 minutes. Let cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes. Transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.


  1. I added these to my recipe folder. I WILL try these! Yumm...

    Good luck girls!!!

  2. Yum! I've done pretzels in chocolate chip cookies but never potato chips. Great recipe! I'll have to try that next

  3. I will try these. I said a prayer for the girls.

  4. This is the third chocolate chip cookie recipe I've read in the past week. Momofuku cookbook has "compoast cookies" which are similar. I always chill cookie dough overnight then scoop individual 1.5 oz portions and freeze. A tray of cookies is only 15 min away whenever we want some. Scientific reasons do apply though it's mostly for convenience and ease of clean-up in my case. Wondered if adding potato chips or pretzel chips before freezing would lose that crispy texure when baked. Thanks to anyone who can answer this as I want, no NEED, cookies.
