Bacon Toffee Potato Chip Cookies

I spent the entire day cooking last Saturday.  Homemade salted caramels, No-Bake Biscoff Balls, peanut butter cup and truffle cookies and gluten-free lemon bars are all piled in abundance in my kitchen.  Even after a family Christmas party and making a plate for my husband to take to work at the police department, there’s still…
