If you are looking for a
cookie that will please the sweet/salt tastebuds at the same time, this is the
cookie to try! This is another recipe
from Nestle that can be found on allrecipes.com and another cookie assignment
for this month as an Allrecipes Allstar Ambassador! This recipe was very
easy to put together, just a little bit of measuring and crunching when it came
to the pretzels and potato chips.
When making these I decided to try the dough. I could really
get the potato chip (my favorite part with the sweet) in the dough. However, after they had baked, I really couldn’t get the chip anymore and while they are still delicious, I was more
fond of the dough than the actual cookie.
I can say that everyone at work thoroughly enjoyed them (at least those
that came to see me after grabbing one anyway!).
This is not a cookie for
those who love chewy or soft. These are
definitely a crunchy cookie. Therefore,
they aren’t high on Grumpy’s list since he favors chewy. These are not a calorie friendly cookie either if your concerned about calorie/fat consumption that is. However, that said, they are a great choice to add to
your cookie tray or share in a cookie swap for variety and something different! They are definitely
different and certainly hip! Imagine the
look when you tell people there are potato chips in them. 😉
If you are wanting to eat one of these and still count your WW points….if you get 60 cookies as the recipe states, it will be 2 points per cookie.
