Incredible Butterscotch Potato Chip Cookies
Yup, I did it.
I finally baked some cookies with potato chips. It may sound strange for some, but after you try these and taste the combination of butterscotch and potato chips, you’ll be saying: why didn’t I think of this before?
It’s true, the combination it’s perfect, not too sweet, not too salty. And every bite has layers of flavors. That’s what butterscotch does.
On the other hand, the potato chips stay crunchy inside the cookie, while providing that surprising edge of flavor when you first take a bite.
My secret? Never crush those beautiful Lay’s Classic Potato Chips. Keep them in small pieces to fit the inside of cookie but be delicate when adding them in the cookie dough.
Now that summer is here I’m concocting some treats to take on the go so we can enjoy it everywhere without the worrying about spoiling, damaging, or melting.
Here in Miami, these Potato Chip Cookies are perfect to take to the beach, pool, park, road trips, and even airplanes. For the beach, I simply use a bag clip to keep together a baggie of cookies and Lay’s Potato chips for each kid and a big fruit like an apple or pear.
My girls can eat one in the car and that’ll distract them for 5 minutes before asking again “when are we getting there?”
Head over to your local Publix and get the Frito-Lay Variety Pack or Sack and it’ll last you all summer. Use the original flavor for the cookies and the rest for snacking.
So, are you willing to expand your palate and add some potato chips to your cookie dough?
Trust me on this one, it works 😉 Just remember to use classic flavor and not venture out and add the BBQ or Sour Cream & Onion. I couldn’t vouch for those cookies.
