Salty & Sweet: Bun In My Oven's Potato Chip Cookies!
The perfect accompaniment to any dessert? French fries. I'm a slave to the phenom--yes, phenom--of the salty/sweet combination. And so how could I pass up sharing this recipe for chocolate chip cookies with crushed potato chips thrown into the batter from baking blog Buns In My Oven? The tiny bits of crunchy saltiness work as perfect accents to the classic chocolate chip cookie.
It works in the same bizarre way that bacon bits work with chocolate bars. Or pretzels with chocolate. Or how sea salt works with caramel... but this time, all the ingredients are probably in your pantry right now.
The following recipe is borrowed in its entirety from Bun In My Oven!
Potato Chip Cookies
Adapted from Taste of Home "Best Summer Desserts"
- 1 cup butter
- 3/4 cup granulated sugar
- 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 2 cups crushed potato chips
- 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs. Combine the flour and baking soda and slowly add to the creamed sugars. Mix well. Stir in the potato chips and chocolate chips.
Drop by small spoonfuls onto an ungreased baking sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool for one minute before removing to a wire rack.
