Cookie Recipe #224 - Potate Chip Crispies
Here's a way to use up those crumbs in the bottom of the potato chip bag that noone wants to eat. If you're not to the bottom yet, then put a few in a resealable plastic bag and crush with your hands (frustration reliever). It's hard to describe the taste of this cookie other than it is a mixture of sweet and salty.
Ingredients: 3/4 cup butter, softened, 1/2 cup granulated sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 1 egg, 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour, 2 cups crushed potato chips, divided.
Instructions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large mixing bowl beat butter; add sugar and vanilla and continue beating. Add in egg until combined. Gradually add flour until thoroughly incorporated, then 1 cup of the crushed potato chips.
Shape dough into 1 1/2 inch balls (dampen fingers for easing rolling). Roll balls in remaining crushed potato chips. Place balls 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheets; flatten slightly with hands.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven about 12 minutes or until golden. Transfer cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
Makes about 2 dozen cookies.
