Once upon a time, my mother-in-law Pam challenged me to figure out what the secret ingredient was in her Guess Again Cookies. Well, I failed.
The cookies were great and I had to eat several of them to try and find the secret ingredient but in the end, I could not figure it out.
Can you believe the secret ingredient is Potato Chips? Yes you read that right. Potato Chips in a cookie. I can roll with that... I think.
All kidding aside, these cookies are delish. The Potato Chips add a nice salty touch to these awesome cookies. I love crunchy cookies which is exactly what these cookies are.
🥜 Nut Allergies
This recipe may contain peanuts or other nuts and seeds as one of its ingredients. Please take the appropriate precautions.
