It is time for another round of Mystery Dish! I took a few months off from this fun challenge, but I am back! Every month a group of my blog friends and I choose a list of ingredients, and we each have to come up with a recipe using some of the mystery ingredients. It is so much fun to come up with new recipes, and it always challenges me to step out of my comfort zone a bit in the kitchen. Which leads me to….

Potato Chip Cookies…yes, I put potato chips in my cookies. I really thought that I would never put potato chips in my cookies. I know that it has been done many times before, but to me it seems so, well, weird. But, Mystery Dish made me do it. I had no choice. Potato chips were on the list this month along with chocolate chunks and almond butter and I just knew that I had to make almond butter chocolate chunk potato chip cookies.
