Santa’s Trash Cookies

These are so good! I just ate two! The sweet and salty combo is to die for.

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1 egg

2 teaspoons vanilla

2 1/4 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

3/4 cup crushed potato chips

3/4 cup crushed pretzels

1 1/4 cups chocolate chips (I did 1/2 cup red and green M&M’s and 3/4 cup chocolate chips)

flaky sea salt for garnish

1 Preheat oven to 350. Line cookie sheets with parchment.

2 Beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 – 4 minutes. Beat in egg and vanilla until combined.

3 Whisk together flour, baking soda, and salt then add dry ingredients to wet and mix just until combined.

4 Gently fold in potato chips, pretzels, and chocolate chips (and M&M’s if using).

5 Scoop onto cookie sheets and press down lightly on each cookie to flatten then sprinkle with salt.

6 Bake until edges are just starting to get golden, about 14 minutes.

7 Let cool 2 – 3 minutes before removing from cookie sheets.

Yield: I doubled the recipe and it made 6 1/2 dozen
