delicious sweet & salty potato chip cookies



  • 1/4 cup Butter, room temperature (preferably unsalted)
  • 12 cup Sugar (regular / brown sugar ; granulated powdered – see notes)
  • 1 tablespoon Milk (plus more, if required)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1 cup All Purpose Flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 cup Crushed Potato Chips
  • 1/4 cup Chocolate Chips or Raisins (optional)


  1. Add the butter and sugar & beat well until it is smooth and creamy. If you’re using granulated brown / regular sugar, it may take longer and wont cream entirely either. It is okay
  2. Add the milk and vanilla & mix
  3. Add the flour, baking powder & baking soda. Mix gently to combine flour with wet ingredients to form a soft dough. If mixture seems too crumbly, add another teaspoon of milk till you have a soft cookie dough (do not over-mix or you’ll end up with a bread-y texture)
  4. Add the crushed Potato chips and Chocolate Chips (optional). Fold in the chips into the cookie batter
  5. Make small 1 tablespoon balls of the cookies and place on the baking sheet. If you want very thin cookies, gently flatten out the cookies with your hand. If you want larger / plumper cookies, make bigger balls from cookie dough
  6. Bake at 180 C for 12-15 minutes. (keep a watch out from 12th minute. If cookies start to brown, take them out)
  7. Let it cool completely. Store in air tight box


  1. You can add any kind of potato chips you like.
  2. Using granulated sugar adds a crunchy texture to the cookies. You can choose to add regular powdered sugar if you don’t like your cookies too grainy or crunchy
  3. This dough freezes well too. Wrap in plastic wrap and freeze upto a week. Thaw in microwave for 15 seconds, shape the cookies bake away!
