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.
