Extra-crunchy, tasty cookies

The Baltimore Sun

Glenda Blurton of Canton, Ohio, was looking for a recipe for a potato-chip cookie. She remembered that the batter contained chips. Colleeen Norris of Pennville, Ind., had a recipe for the cookies that her aunt gave her at least 30 years ago.

Her recipe says either butterscotch or chocolate chips can be used. I tested the recipe using chocolate chips. The cookies were very similar to a classic Toll House chocolate-chip cookie, but the addition of the potato chips made them extra crunchy and extra good.

I'm sure they would be equally delicious made with butterscotch chips or perhaps a combination of the two.
