These are one of my favorite cookies. For best flavor and texture, do NOT overbake - the cookies pictured with the recipe are overdone. I bake about 9 1/2 minutes. Dusting with powdered sugar is a must. Thanks for contributing this recipe!!

i made this exactly how stated but it turned out a mess. the chips became chewy (in a bad, stale-like, way) and the cookie did not hold up as one piece. not worth all of the calories.

These cookies are well worth heating up the oven on a summer day!! I took another cooks advice and used the saltier chips--excellent. These will be a favorite in my house.

Worth the calories! Use a thin potato chip like Lays. Do not flatten dough with a fork. Just drop dough from a teaspoon or a medium/small scoop. Bake cookies only until edges are slightly browned (do not over cook). Dust with powdered sugar when still warm. Enjoy!

These cookies were awesome!! Made them to take to work and everyone loved them. Passed the recipe on to several people. I think using good butter makes all the difference

This is a great recipe. For the best turn-out, use a saltier brand of chips...like Lays.

These cookies are really tasty. I added a little more potato chips than the recipe calls for, and sprinkled powdered sugar on while they were cooling.

My knitting group raves over this one. I get asked to make them for every party. With and without pecans. They just melt in your mouth. Try them! Don't forget to sprinkle with powdered sugar hot out of the oven.
