I simply LOVE to snack on salty potato chips, and I LOVE to nibble on a sweet cookie! So, what happens when you mix these two delightful tastes together? Potato Chip Cookies...and they're low fat too! Hip hip hooray!

3/4 Cup Brown Sugar (firmly packed)
2 Eggs
2 Cups All-Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda
2 Cups Crushed Potato Chips (light or baked)
1 Cup Butterscotch Chips or Chocolate Chips of choice

Directions:

1. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter and sugars
    until light and fluffy.
2. Beat in eggs.
3. In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking soda, then gradually add to the creamed
    mixture, mixing well.
4. Add butterscotch or chocolate chips and mix.
5. Add crushed potato chips and mix gently until well combined.
