Potato Chip Chocolate Chip Cookies (adapted from The Search for the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie by Gwen Steege)

1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups plain flour
1 tsp baking soda

2 cups plain salted potato chips, coarsely crushed
1½ cups dark chocolate chips
1 cup chopped nuts – optional (I used peanuts)

1. Cream butter, sugars and eggs. Stir in vanilla. Add flour and baking soda, then potato chips, then chocolate chips and nuts. Mix after each addition.
2. Line a baking sheet with baking paper and drop teaspoons onto baking sheet (they will spread a lot). Bake at 180 C for 10-12 minutes. Yielded 3 dozen.

I'm definitely going to make these again. The salty and sweet really complimented each other and I love how the chips gave that added crunch and dimension. I'll try adding oats into the mix next time around.
