I made a few adjustments to this recipe and it turned out wonderfully! For starters, I doubled the recipe exactly. I added 3/4 c. brown sugar and 2 tsp. baking powder. Also, I flattened each cookie with a fork prior to baking - these cookies won't flatten on their own! Very nice flavor and so easy to make! The only other suggestion I can think of is to possibly cut back on the butter due to the oily-ness of the potato chips, though I didn't find that the amount of butter was necessarily a problem. Thanks for the recipe!


I've never had cookies made with potato chips before, so I didn't know how finely to crush the chips. I crushed them rather finely, and they turned out all right. Next time I think I won't crush them quite as much because it may improve the texture. These cookies tasted great - buttery and sweet, with just a touch of walnut flavor. I also like that they don't flatten out as they bake!

This recipe needs adjustments. After making as written, the first batch came out somewhat bland, crumbly balls of dough. I then added some vanilla and pressed them down before baking; this helped. These have a very grainy texture. I think it needed the whole egg and probably a whole cup of butter to improve it more.
