"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."

"I made these for an Ice Cream Social . Everyone loved them (no one could guess the secret ingredient) I also made 1/2 of the recipe, next time I'll make it complete. Fantastic!!!"

"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"

"They remind me of the butterballs I make for winter .. similar recipe only rolled and dipped in powdered sugar after they cook. I didn't taste the chips at all. I'm curious why they were added. Yummy recipe though. :)"
