I heard about potato chip cookies years ago...I looked up a few recipes for them and they seemed to vary greatly, some use white sugar,some use brown,some call for egg or egg yolk,some call for more or less potato chips,ridges,non ridges,butterscotch chips,etc,etc...But here is what I came up with and tastes SO good. I made them with and without pecans(my kids hate any kind of nut in cookies) and they are both very I am making the pecans optional in this recipe.
