Butterscotch-Potato Chip Cookies

Just playing in the kitchen...


1 cup butter (2 sticks), room temperature

3/4 cup packed brown sugar

3/4 cup white sugar

2 eggs

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 1/3 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1 cup butterscotch chips

1 cup coarsely crushed potato chips


Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. (I use the convection bake).  Butter two baking pans.

In a food processor, cream together butter and both sugars.  Mix in eggs and vanilla extract.  Combine flour and baking soda and add to mixture in two batches.  Remove batter to a large bowl.  Stir in butterscotch morsels and carefully fold in potato chips.

Place a rounded teaspoon's worth of batter on baking sheets, about 1 1/2" apart.  Bake 12 - 14, minutes, or until lightly golden (if centers are a littlel soft, it's ok, because they'll firm up as the cookie cools - you want them crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside).  Makes 4 dozen.
