Potato chip cookie report

teebee's picture

A few weeks back we had a discussion about the "Potato Chip Cookies" in the Cookie issue, but I don't think that anyone ever did make them (if someone did and posted about it, I missed it). Well, I made them today (my friend's son wanted to bake with me, and he thought that they sounded interesting).

These cookies rock! We only made a single batch, but should have doubled it. We got exactly 24 cookies (the recipe said "about 30"). I think that had they been called, "Pecan Sandies," they would sound better. We followed the recipe, including letting the cookies cool on the sheet for 5 minutes (they were pretty fragile when warm). I did bake the cookies 25 degrees lower in my convection oven, and did not swap positions as the recipe indicates.

The other cookie that we tried for the first time was the "Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies"on the page facing the potato chip cookie recipe. Let me just say that you should have milk and several friends when you make these cookies... Happy baking!

Recently cut and stored away a cookie recipe developed by a Mom with a son who is allergic to nuts -- she put crushed potato chips and crushed pretzles in the batter.  They're kind of log-like with the ends dipped in either regular or white chocolate.  I'll get to trying them some day.

Mocha Chocolate Chip Cookies

These are very dangerous cookies to have in the house.  I know the ghosts that live here empty the container very quickly.

I have the potato chip recipe in my 'to do' pile, glad to know they are good.

Yeah, I might have to re-arrange my baking to include these.
