"I received this recipe from a client back in 1974. The only change is I sprinkle them with powdered sugar after they have cooled a little. They are truly wonderful."

"These are delicious! ! Roasted the nuts first as some suggested. Even cut back sugar a tad. Just cause I don't like things sugary sweet. A really easy recipe. I am always looking for different type shortbread or sugar cookie recipes, these are #1 on my list now."

"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."

"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."

"these are buttery, potato chips give the recipe salt. other than the saltiness, .a little on the bland side, but goes well with other things"
