Potato Chip Cookies


1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
½ cup sugar
1 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups coarsely crushed potato chips.


Preheat the oven to 325°. Line two cookie sheets with parchment paper. 

Beat the butter and sugar until fluffy.  Beat in the vanilla, flour and 1 cup of potato chips, mix well.

Shape the dough into 1-inch balls; roll them in the remaining chips. Place on cookie sheets 2½ inches apart, and press a bit to flatten.

Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until lightly browned.  Let cool on pans for 5 minutes. Transfer to racks to cool completely.

Bid on this basket HERE.

I made these and they were good. A little dry, so I might add something to them next time, but they were good. and someone ate them all....

I'll have to try these. My mom used to make the most amazing potato chip cookies, but I can't find the recipe she used.
