Here’s one of my favorite cookie recipes (hard to believe, considering it’s not chocolate). I made a batch today for Grandparents’ Day at our school. These are super simple to make. A tasty butter cookie with a nice crunch. Where does the crunch come from? You guessed it, Potato Chips. I know that sounds weird, but these are really good cookies. You get about 6 dozen with this recipe, which is why I chose to make these for today’s celebration. You must try these. I know it’s a bit early to start thinking about Christmas, but this is a good cookie to bring for a cookie exchange. Give them a try! You won’t be disappointed.
You will need:
1 pound of butter, softened (Yes, a whole pound.)
1 cup sugar
2 tsp. vanilla
3 ¾ cups flour
1 cup crushed Jay’s Potato Chips
Preheat oven to 350 F.
In a large bowl, mix the butter, sugar, and vanilla until smooth.
Add the flour and mix.
Mix in the crushed potato chips. (Note: To crush the potato chips, I just put them in a plastic sandwich bag and crush them with my hand.)
Form the dough into medium/small balls and place on cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 F for 12 – 15 minutes.
Roll in powdered sugar when cooled.
