Author Notes

These cookies have a little bit of everything going on - they're sweet, buttery, crunchy, yet slightly chewy, chocolatey, and most notably...salty. I like to have mine a little under-baked so they remain slightly soft in the centre but crunchy on the edges. Use milk chocolate if you prefer it to dark, and do try to use good quality potato chips. —Jordan Rondel, The Caker

What You'll Need
  • 1, 1/3 sticks of unsalted butter, softened

  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until pale, light and fluffy.

Sadly, these were a disappointment. You can't really taste much of anything. I even tried crumbling potato chips on top after the oven but it just seems a mismatch. It's too bad because I loved the idea of a potato chip in a cookie.
