"Grandma Rall made this recipe lots, using up potato chip crumbs (usually stale) that nobody wanted. Walnuts add even more crunch to this unusual cookie."

crushed potato chips
These were really good but I gave it 4 stars because of the adjustments. I have been looking for this basic recipe for quiet awile and was thrilled to find the "right" one finally. The only thing I did different was omit the nuts (I have a daughter who hates nuts....couldn't be my kid) decrease the potato chips to 1 1/2 cups (two cups made it just TOO potato chip for my family} and added 1/2 cup of coconut. They were a hit and disappeared as fast as I cooked them.
This recipe was just "OK" after reading all the reviews, I really thought this was going to be a great cookie recipe. Nothing special. Why add all the fat and calories when the potato chip really did not add anything to it at all. I do have to admit that I did add chocolate chips, and I am glad I did or these really would of been a disappointment.
these are great u never would guess it was made with chips!
i can never keep them around for long.
These cookies are so addictive! When I made them my mom thought they were going to be too greasy, then she ate half the batch :)When I tell people they have potato chips in them they are a little hesitate to taste them but once they do they become the most requested cookie. Thank you so much for sharing.
a good cookie. you dont really think they are made from chips. the trick is to use a good quality chip. keep away from the off brand greasy chipa and you will really enjoy these
My mom use to make these when I was a kid. These are delicious. Didn't change a thing in the recipe.
Hard to eat only one. I only had one and a quarter c. of crushed potato chips but the kids were dying to bake these so we tried anyways. I used butter and reduced the sugar. The potato chips release a lot of oil so I will try reducing the amount of butter slightly next time.
Great little cookie. Crisp around the edges, chewy in the center. Certainly not gourmet but tasty none the less.
