"Thought these were quite good. I would make sure to use the thicker cut potato chips (with ridges) which helps gives the cookies more texture."

"These did spread a bit, I added 1/2 cup chocolate chipss and used almond extract instead of vanilla.. They were great"

"It is difficult to know when these are done baking- in that they do not change shape or color during the process. They stayed pale, listless spheres of disappointment, and I finally removed them from the oven out of sheer pity. I think these cookies want to be a "shortbread"- but they aren't good at it. They have the taste and consistency of radiator dust, and no ambition at all. I tried adding butterscotch chips out of desperation, but it was too late. There is nothing inherently "wrong" with them, in the way that there is nothing wrong with toilet paper, but I don't put that on a plate."
