Hello on a Tuesday! I adding in a last minute post today to help out with yesterday’s Secret Recipe Club reveal.
Today I’m baking up some completely fabulous cookies from Kate’s blog, Food Babbles.
Kate describes herself as a (mostly) stay at home mom, and part time paramedic, and amateur photographer. She sure sounds busy! And yet she has time to make all sorts of wonderful, beautifully photographed recipes.
While I was browsing through her recipes, I noticed a half bag of potato chips taunting me in the background. So when I saw potato chip cookies, I knew that was the way to go (and we all know how much I adore the salty-sweet combination!)
So stop by and say Hi to Kate and enjoy some delicious cookies!
*I used a mini food processor to finely crush the potato chips.
*For the coarsely crushed potato chips, I simply took a couple handfuls of chips and crushed them in my hands directly into the measuring cup.
*Since the potato chips are so greasy, I cut the amount of Crisco in this recipe down by 1/3.
Potato Chip Cookies
Adapted from Food Babbles
½ cup Crisco (or butter)
½ cup granulated sugar
½ cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup finely crushed potato chips (about 4 cups uncrushed)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 tsp baking powder
½ tsp table salt
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup coarsely crushed potato chips
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and line several baking sheets with parchment paper.
Place the Crisco and both sugars into the bowl of a stand mixer. Beat the mixture on medium speed until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
Turn the mixer to low and stir in the finely crushed potato chips until combined. Add in the eggs and vanilla, mix until smooth.
Stir in the flour, baking powder, and salt until well combined; the dough will be quite thick. Fold in the chocolate chips and coarsely crushed potato chips with a spoon.
With a 2 tablespoon cookie scoop, drop the dough onto the prepared baking sheets. Press down lightly on the top of each cookie to flatten it slightly. Bake in the preheated oven for 14-17 minutes or until the cookies are set and the edges are browned.
Makes about 30 cookies
