YOU’VE tried coating your chicken with potato chips for that unique crunch on the outside while the chicken is tender and juicy on the inside. But have you ever tried adding potato chips to your cookies? No? In the recent Cake Boss baking demonstration held at True Value Shangri-La Plaza, seasoned pastry chef and culinary teacher Chef Dorothy Ferreria showed that, yes, potato chips can be incorporated into cookies and that, yes, again, they are yummy.
Chef Dorothy made Potato Chips in My Cookies as one of her featured recipes. She used Cake Boss bakeware and utensils, which were uniquely designed by celebrity chef Buddy Valastro. These are the same functional designs that he uses on his show Cake Boss, which are now available in the Philippines.
Along with event host Steven Silva, himself a chef, Chef Dorothy captured the full attention of the audience with her interesting recipes.
3/4 cup unsalted butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 cup white sugar
1 whole egg
1-1/2 cups sifted all purpose flour
60 gram salted potato chips, crushed
1. Preheat oven to 350˚F.
2. Using an electric mixer, cream together butter, vanilla and sugar. Beat at medium speed until combined. Pour in egg and beat until blended. Add flour and mix on low speed until no trace of flour is visible. Add potato chips and beat only until well dispersed.
3. Using a Cake Boss Mechanical Cookie Scoop, form cookie dough into balls and arrange on Cake Boss Cookie Pan, using the markings on the pan as a guide.
4. Bake for 15 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Allow cookies to cool in the pan for 5 minutes before transferring to airtight food containers.
