Even though I have a sweet tooth, I adore potato chips and was especially excited when I uncovered this gem of a recipe, buried deep inside a c. 1960s recipe box. What could be better than the sweet and salty combination promised by these unusual cookies?
The verdict? These cookies are not overly sweet (or salty, for that matter) and if I make them again, I'll use butterscotch chips, which are sweeter than semi-sweet chocolate. I was somewhat disappointed with these, i.e., I thought they'd be sooooo much better, that the unusual combination would create some new taste sensation. However, my tasters loved them and they disappeared pretty quickly. Proving once again that if beauty is in the eye of the beholder, taste is in the mouth of the eater.
