  • 1 teaspoon baking soda    1/2 tsp baking soda & 1/2 baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt   no salt, plenty in the potato chips
  • 1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened   1 1 /2 sticks of butter / margarine at room temperature.  Potato chips have enough oil to cut out the half. Room temperature

Directions: Preheat oven 350. Mix the butter/ margarine and the sugars well / creamed up like. Add the vanilla. Mix well. Add the eggs one at a time mixing well. Add the dry ingredients 1/ 3 at a time until it is mixed well. Add the chocolate chips. Refrigerate for a couple of hours (optional). Let dough set out a bit so you can mix in the potato chips. Do this right before you bake so the potato chips are crispy baking in the cookie. Bake on 350 for 10-12 minutes depending on your oven. Let cool enough so it doesn' burn your tongue. Enjoy!
