This is a classic recipe of America’s favorite chocolate chip cookie, with a unique twist of sweet ‘n salty in every bite. The element of surprise is the classic potato chip that we all love added to the cookie dough. One bite of these cookies and you will be hooked. This cookie dough recipe is very versatile, you can just add about anything. Nuts, raisins, and yes “potato chips”, it always comes out great. These come out, soft and chewy and crisp on the outside. You can store them in a container at room temperature for about 2-3 days. But, don’t expect these on the counter for too long, these will be gone in a day.

- 1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter softened
- 1/2 cup or less light brown sugar
- 1/3 cup granulated white sugar
- 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup semi-sweet or bittersweet chocolate chips (*I use 1/2 cup if adding other ingredients, like nuts.)
- 2 hand fulls regular potato chips
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Combine, flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl.
Beat butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and vanilla in a large mixing bowl (You can do this step by hand or use stand mixer). Beat in the egg.
Gradually beat in the flour mixture.
Stir in chocolate chips and than add the potato chips (you don’t need to crush the potato chips before hand, they will crush while you mix them into the dough, this way you preserve some of the chunks of the potato chip).
Prepare 2 baking sheets. Line with parchment paper. Drop by a tbsp full of the cookie dough. Make sure to leave some space between, so that the cookie will have room to spread while baking.
Bake for 11 minutes or until golden. Let stand for 2 minutes; remove and place on a wire rack to cool completely.
