We were talking about our cookie making extravaganza that we do every year. There were the usual suspects – the butter cookies, those cookies that my sister makes with the pretty irons ( I forget what they’re called)… and my sister says – and potato chip cookies, right?
This was a recipe from the 70s. Ever since I dug it out a few years ago, everyone loves them. Try it once, and you’ll have to make them forevermore –
Potato Chip Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup light brown sugar- packed
1 cup white sugar
1/3 cup chopped nuts (optional)
1 -6oz. pkg. semisweet chocolate pieces
2 cups crushed potato chips
2 cups flour mixed with 1 teas. baking soda
Beat butter, sugars and eggs until well blended in large bowl.
Stir in the rest of the ingredients and mix until well blended.
Shape into 3/4 inch balls. (if dough is too sticky, refrigerate for about 1/2 hour)
Place 2 inches apart on greased cookie sheet.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 10 – 12 minutes, until lightly browned.
Cool for about a minute, then remove to wire racks to continue cooling. Cool completely.
Makes about 84.
Store in airtight container in cool dry place for up to 2 weeks
