Questions & Replies

  1. Can someone tell me the potato chips that anyone used? I'm wavering between Original Lays or Ruffles. Would Ruffles be too thick? Thank you!
  2. What is icing sugar?


  1. This was a very good cookie! I enjoyed telling people hat there was a "secret ingredient" in them. lol I followed the recipe as written and the cookies were very tender (delicate). I couldn't help but wonder what they'd be like with a little chocolate drizzled on them (before the powdered sugar went on them). Hmmm, perhaps next time! Thank you for posting this recipe!
  2. This was so much fun to make! I made it with my 11 y/o son and he simply loved it. I was surprised to start with the cup of butter, but all the ingredients were perfect! I made strict to specs. The taste did indeed have a "pop-rocks" texture and almost impossible to identify the potato chips in the end product. Everyone who tried them was astounded when I told them the secret ingredient. LOL The cookies were not overly sweet, and the crunch was just perfect! Thank you for sharing this wonderful treat! ~Buddha
  3. Wonderful and original recipe. My two kids, 8 and 10, loved making the cookies and my husband said they tasted like they had pop-rocks in them. These will become our new Christmas cookies!
  4. I am NOT a baker. These were so easy to make and everyone loved them. (They were also unable to guess the POTATO CHIPS) Thanks for the recipie!

Hi .. The pic is of my beautiful son, born on 2/5/2005. His name is Tariq, meaning Bright Star. As I type this, he is blowing bubbles in his water cup and watching cartoons. He whined to get this water for 15 mins and now he won't drink it, he will only play with it. Sigh.. A few days ago he came up with this song, so sing along to the tune of "Old McDonald" : Old McTariq Laq Laq Laq E I E I OOOOOO LOL I thought it was the cutest thing :-) When I'm not running around after my son, or cleaning up the mess he makes wherever he goes, I cook and bake (my husband loves the blueberry muffins I make) and I love trying new recipes .. I also love to read, and collect sci-fi/fantasy novels .. I have over 500 books and still counting ..
