Potato CHIP Cookies

I have been really into tricking the victims lately with desserts. Dacia sent me this neat recipe among all the other goodies in my Second String Swap package for cookies made from potato chips. Yes! (insert evil laugh here).


*****************************************************
POTATO CHIP COOKIES

1 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1/2 cup crushed plain potato chips (I used 1 whole cup)

Blend butter, sugar, vanilla. Cream well. Add in flour, potato chips. Drop by tsp on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake @ 350 degrees 12-15 min. Top with powdered sugar.

*********************************************************
I was able to trick the victims succesfully with these cookies, they had no idea that they had potato chips in them. They really liked them as well. I do think my victims are getting a bit tried of my shannigans so next week I am going to have to make something 'real'.

Sorry, I meant to say, I'd heard of the cracker apple pie, but never potato chip cookies. Weird!

OooOOoooh. Very, very interesting.

They taste (to me) like Pecan Sandies
These are a long time favorite in my house and I also include them in my annual Christmas Cookie Tray because they are ALWAYS requested.

New reader, btw, just thought I would say hi =)

I found my recipe. It calls for a cup of crushed chips (I found original Lays to work the best), but a full cup of sugar. Also 1/2 to 1 cup of chopped walnuts or pecans. Bake 350 degrees for 18 to 20 minutes, and just leave like that (no powdered sugar). I've made them several times and found them excellent. Nice texture. I wonder what they'd taste like with chocolate on top or mini chips added?

I don't see how potato chips combined with cookies can be anything less than The Perfect Food.
