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

2 eggs

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

    Made these and they were yummy! There are lots of recipes for salty caramel, and I think these would also be lovely with chunks of caramel added. Confusingly in my part of the world, chunks of caramel are called caramel chips, and chips are called crisps! :-))
    Merry Christmas Carole!
