Add Potato Chips to Your Next Batch of Cookie Dough

How good does something have to be to no longer need to be tweaked? You would think that the basic chocolate chip cookie recipe would be one of those things that needs no modification, but you would be wrong. The latest improvement to chocolate chip cookies is the addition of potato chips to the dough. The salt balances the sweetness, and the chips’ texture offers a subtle counterbalance to the doughy chew. You can use chips in pretty much any drop cookie recipe that calls for mix-ins. For example, if a chocolate chip recipe calls for a cup of nuts, replace them with a cup of gently crushed potato chips. You might be surprised at how much the addition of the chips elevates the rich taste of the standard chocolate chip cookie.
