Potato Chip Cookies
This is a delicious blend of a sweet and salty flavor all because you use potato chips in the cookie recipe. Yes this is an unusual ingredient but the taste is absolutely wonderful. There are no eggs in these cookies, no water and no milk.  It's really amazing just how good potato chips can make a cookie.
