"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." — Fran

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.
