These are AWESOME !!!!! My sister-in-law is the "keeper" of this recipe. She's made these for years. You'd never know they were made with Potato Chips. She calls them "Buttery Cookies"

These are great! I was skeptical of the potato chip idea, but went for it and am glad I did! I made mine just like the recipe said. I was worried because I only had salted butter, but they turned out fine - not too salty at all! I will definitely make these again. I can't wait to share with my friends and family!

At first I was a little leary to try these, but I am a person that will try anything once. And these were one of the best cookies I have had. They almost remind me of a shortbread cookie.
