Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon fine salt
  • 2 sticks (1/2 pound) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup lightly crushed thick-slice potato chips
  • Up to 1 cup total of any or all of your favorite stir ins: Chopped walnuts pecans peanuts candy-coated chocolate or peanut butter candy such as mini mms or Reeses pieces dried cranberries or cherries white chocolate chips chocolate chunks toffee bits

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine the flour, baking soda, and salt in a large bowl. Beat the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy on medium speed in another bowl. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then add the vanilla.

At a low speed, add the flour mixture in batches until just blended. Be careful not to overbeat or the dough will toughen. Stir in chocolate chips and your choice of stir-ins with a wooden spoon until well combined. Chill the dough 30 minutes or overnight.

Shape or scoop using an ice cream scoop into 2-inch balls spaced about 3-inches apart on baking sheets. Bake until golden brown around the edges, about 15 minutes. Let cool on baking sheets, about 3 minutes. Transfer cookies to a cooling rack and cool.
