I really, really liked this recipe! Quick and extremely easy to make, and with a really good tasting, not-too-sweet cookie as your end result. I particularly liked the fact that, though the recipe calls for real butter, you didn't have to refrigerate the dough before baking. I adapted the recipe to a half batch with no problems. The only thing I found I had to do differently was modify the baking time a bit: I cooked them for about 11 minutes on a parchment paper-lined sheet, and they turned out beautifully. My entire family loved these cookies, and I will definitely make them again. Thanks so much, Arlene! :)


These are surprisingly good - nice and crunchy! I added 1 t of vanilla. Don't let the potato chips put you off.


Unlike others, my cookies did not spread when baking. They were perfect and like most cookies, though I only bake with butter. (sometimes overbeating/creaming has caused my cookies to spread). I did substitute toffee chips (with the chocolate on them) for the butterscotch chips. They came out great, and the hint of chocolate was great. Also, they didn't seem to be as sweet as when I used the butterscotch chips.
