This is an old recipe that I got 40 years ago from the mother of a childhood friend. Not sure where the idea of adding potato chips came from but these are really good. Made a batch of these cookies today! Made 6 dozen. I love the expression on peoples faces when I tell them the recipe has 2 cups of crushed tater chips. Can't really taste the chips...more like butterscotch. Enjoy!
