Potato Chip Cookies
Your favorite childhood chocolate chip cookie just got a salty upgrade.
When it comes to cookies, there’s no such thing as too much of a good thing. And this time, we’re going low-brow, high-flavor. Rather than bringing in fancy flakes of sea salt to zing up the chocolate chunks and add a little more depth, we’re calling on crinkle-cut potato chips to do the trick. The cookie itself has a little more depth than your average chocolate chip cookie, as the dark chocolate tempers the richness of the semisweet chocolate, plus the potato chip bits make the cookies satisfyingly chewy. And with only 20 minutes of active time, these crispy-edged cookies come together easily and are totally gift-worthy (though one salty-sweet taste may render you a little less generous). A note from the Test Kitchen: While it may be tempting to skip the fifteen minutes of freezer time, the wait is worth it: Freezing the scoops of dough ensures that the cookies stay round and don’t spread too much on the sheet pan while baking.
