If your weekend plans involve getting together and watching the big game, we’ve got an easy treat that combines both salty and sweet in an irresistible cookie. These Potato Chip Cookies often grace any of our community events tables and are the first samples we run out of. A cookie with crushed potato chips?! It’s the snack that will keep them coming back!

Potato Chip Cookies, (RRR II: A Second Helping, Pg 210)
- 2 cups butter (best with butter but margarine and butter flavoring may be used)
- 1 cup sugar
- 3 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups crushed potato chips
- powdered sugar
Beat butter until light and fluffy- a long time! Add sugar and beat well. Add vanilla and flour gradually. Crush potato chips with your hand and add them last. Drop from teaspoon onto cookie sheets. Bake in a 350 degree oven until slightly brown. Sprinkle with powdered sugar. These keep well in a tightly closed tin- actually taste better the second or third day. Makes 9 to 10 dozen.

Cookbook committee note: Cookie baking time will vary dependent on oven type and climate but typically take 8-12 minutes. For best results, begin monitoring the cookies at 9-10 minutes and remove when slightly browned.
Have a great weekend friends, we’ll see you back next Wednesday!
