Potato Chip Cookie Tips:

                        ONLY use thick Potato Chips.

                                Most recipes on the Internet call for regular                                                potato chips (which are thin chips) but it does                                           make a difference if you use a thick potato chip                                         like Ruffles. they don't turn into mush when mixing and they give you a big crunch in the cookie. You get that sweet salty taste that's delishiousssss!
______________________________________________

                ONLY use room temperatured butter.

                                This recipe calls for 2 sticks of butter but I always
                                use about 3 tablespoons more.  It really depends

on what type of potato chips you use. Since there is no milk, water or eggs in this recipe; the butter is what holds your mix together- because of this you may have to adjust your amount of butter.

Always make sure your butter is room temperature and not melted and not cold.  Cooking Tips
______________________________________________

     Great with Nuts.                       

                                Try doing a nut mix instead of all pecans! Yum! 
                               You can vary this recipe in many different way
                                  as well.  Like... adding choco-chips or coconut-

                         Make your cookies thick!

                                 Make your cookies thick. You can do it!  The                                               dough does not flatten out in the pan during                                               cooking like many cookie recipes do.  They crisp more on the bottom than around the edges like you would expect.  Since they hold their shape in cooking.... and stay really thick, their uniform size makes it easy to pack them in bags, boxes and jars.

Potato Chips in Cookies?
You bet! This is one of my favorite cookie recipes because it's so unusual and so fast to make, as there's no eggs, water or milk in these cookies! I've made them for years, they cook up to be very crunchy with the pecans and potato chips. If you enjoy foods that are sweet and salty at the same time, then you will love these cookies :)
