I really, really liked this recipe! Quick and extremely easy to make, and with a really good tasting, not-too-sweet cookie as your end result. I particularly liked the fact that, though the recipe calls for real butter, you didn't have to refrigerate the dough before baking. I adapted the recipe to a half batch with no problems. The only thing I found I had to do differently was modify the baking time a bit: I cooked them for about 11 minutes on a parchment paper-lined sheet, and they turned out beautifully. My entire family loved these cookies, and I will definitely make them again. Thanks so much, Arlene! :)
These were good...but honestly...the potato chips did not add anything but calories. Very moist and chewy, but I probably won't make these again.
These are surprisingly good - nice and crunchy! I added 1 t of vanilla. Don't let the potato chips put you off.
Unlike others, my cookies did not spread when baking. They were perfect and like most cookies, though I only bake with butter. (sometimes overbeating/creaming has caused my cookies to spread). I did substitute toffee chips (with the chocolate on them) for the butterscotch chips. They came out great, and the hint of chocolate was great. Also, they didn't seem to be as sweet as when I used the butterscotch chips.
These cookies were interesting. Quick and easy to make but I don't think I'd make them again with the butterscotch chips. The butterscotch is a little too sweet so it overwhelms the salty taste. Maybe something like semisweet chocolate chips would make it better!
Very easy to make and tastes great. Excellent way to get rid of the "crumbs" in the bottom of the bag. I put white choclate instead of butterscotch one time and that was good too! Thanks for the recipe.
Love these.Will definetly make them again.Thanks for the recipe.
This cookie is a hit every where I go. People are stunned there are potato chips in them. I add a 3rd egg each time I make it, then they turn out perfect.
