Potato chip cookies are a delicious way to use the crushed or stale bits of chips that are left and create the most unusually delicious cookie!
This recipe was adapted from one of my grandma’s recipes, she never really liked the idea of wasting anything. Crunchy, chewy, buttery, salty, sweet… they really satisfy whatever your tastebuds are craving!
Perfect for slightly stale chips! If your chips are very stale, you can crisp them in the oven on a cookie sheet for 3-5 minutes before adding them to the recipe.

2/3 cup chopped pecans
