Chocolate and Potato Chip Cookies

I don’t have many rules for life as most times I am just flopping through it like a magikarp and praying things will work out. One rule that I do have for blogs and cookbooks is this: if I’ve tried 2 recipes and I don’t like them, I never bake from it again. They either just don’t work for me (sorry Donna Hay) or we have very different tastes. For blogs where I have pushed this rule and made more recipes, it’s never been a happy ending. Blogs that past this one rule has usually led me to fall in love with them where I will turn to them time and time again for trusted recipes.

One of these blogs that fall into this category is Iron Chef Shellie – beautiful photography and styling AND recipes. What’s not to love? These chocolate and potato chip cookies I found from her blog and I couldn’t imagine how they wouldn’t work – C definitely had his doubts before I baked them but ate 3 of them afterwards (I think he liked them). I actually love these cookies so much that I baked and shot them all in the same day. Usually I avoid doing this as I get quite tired but I felt so inspired that I wanted to just smash it out.

Story of my life but you know you’ve baked something good when you proceed to eat 5 of these bad boys straight out of the oven. Can you blame me? Biting into a crispy exterior and then into a chewy, fudgy cookie center that is studded with chocolate chips and potato chips. It doesn’t help that this recipe makes 2 dozen so cookies are way too easily on hand to eat.
