Perfect Potato Chip Cookies

Pin It
I remember I heard about Potato Chip Cookies a while ago, and thought I should try it some time. Of course, I promptly forgot all about it. While I was browsing through The Best American Recipes 2001-2002, from where I made the Double-Baked Flourless Chocolate Cake recipe, I saw a recipe for these cookies and it sounded great. I made some changes to the recipe & I was really pleased with this cookie.

It was a very easy cookie to put together. I made the batch at four o'clock, this evening. It is now 8 o'clock and there are four three cookies left in the cookie jar. And that's the mark of a good cookie, isn't it?

This recipe makes about 32 crispy, crunchy, nutty, sweet-salty cookies.

Potato Chip Cookies

1/2 cup well crushed Potato Chips (plain salted chips only!)
1/2 cup well crushed walnuts
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup butter, at room temperature
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla

1. Mix in a medium bowl the crushed chips, walnuts the flour and the baking powder. Stir together with a spoon.
2. In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar until fluffy. Add the egg yolk and vanilla and beat until completely incorporated and light.
3. Add the dry ingredients into this bowl and stir until completely mixed.
4. Wet your hand and form the dough into 1 inch balls. Place them on a cookie sheet, about 2 inches apart.
5. Bake them in a preheated oven (at 350) for 15-18 minutes or until they just start coloring.
6. Let them rest on the cookie sheet for a few minutes before transferring them to a rack to cool completely.
7. Once they are completely cool, roll the cookies in powdered sugar and transfer to a cookie jar for storage.

Storage is really not a concern with this cookie, because I don't think these cookies would last very long if your house is anything like mine!
