Potato Chip Cookies

October 28, 2014
These cookies are  from waaayyy back in my childhood.  I've mentioned before, that my mom is a total dessert person.  Actually, she's a sweet addict. She loves her desserts and when we were kids, she would bake nearly every day. When we got home from school, there would be something that she had baked up that day.  It could be cake, pie, pudding or cookies.  It was pretty darn awesome.


These cookies were one of my favorite things that she baked up. Until recently, I never even knew what were in these cookies.  Well, obviously, potato chips.  But, the fact that there is 4 sticks of butter in these kinds threw me for a loop.   I mean, guys..these cookies are flour, butter, sugar and potato chips.  No wonder we loved them so much as kids.  They are like a dessert addicts dream.

These are now favorites of my kids.  Except, my oldest son.  He told me putting potato chips in cookies was "just wrong".   I know, it sounds a little funky, but, the whole sweet/salty things is perfect in these.


The mini chocolate chips are totally optional for these.  My mom used to top each cookie with  maraschino cherry while they were still warm. :)

With any add-in of your choice or just plain..these are super delicious.  A great addition to your holiday parties in the near future!!
