  • These sounds bit weird, but GOOD. Call me naive, but when these recipes say shortening, what does that mean? I think that’s what my mom and them called Crisco back in the day – is that what you mean? Whatever it is, it’s not something I’ve ever purchased – do tell!

  • Rachel –
    Yep, shortening is Crisco. They make shortening in sticks that look like butter now — really nice and easy to measure. Some recipes call for butter-flavored shortening, but unless that is specified, just stick with buying regular shortening. You can find the different varieties in the baking aisle. :)

  • i’ve gotten so many skeptical reactions! they’re just potato chips!! they’re awesome cookies :)

  • I like the sound of it because anything crunchy is good – plus they look like thin cookies. It would sound weird with chocolate chips to me, but it sounds perfect with butterscotch. I will try these sometime!

  • This sounds delicious! I love anything that’s sweet and salty. Bacon chocolate chip cookies ….. mmmm.
