Potato Chip Cookies

Donna's friend made a batch of these and sent one home for me, I sent Liz back for the recipe. I had never heard of using Potato Chips in cookies, these are just Wonderful, could it possibly be the cup of butter? No, they are Christmas cookies butter calories don't count this time of year!

Potato Chip Cookies

1 Cup butter
1/2 Cup Sugar
1 tsp vanilla
2 Cups flour
1 Cup Crushed potato chips
1/2 cup chopped pecans (I used 1/2 cup chocolate chips)

Beat butter, sugar, and vanilla until light and fluffy. Add rest of ingredients, mixing well. Drop by teaspoonfuls on ungreased baking sheet,. Flatten each cookie into round disc by pressing with a small glass bottom dipped into sugar. Bake 12-15 minutes at 350 degrees. If you use the nuts they are to taste like Pecan Sandies.

I don't like Nuts in my cookies that is why I used the chocolate chips, there is a quote about nuts that I love...

Families are like fudge
Mostly sweet, with a few nuts.

LOL, I told you it was a good one.

Now Butter, one of my Favorite things yes, it is to be found in the Bible in several places this is a favorite of mine:
Genesis 18:8
He then brought some curds and milk and the calf that had been prepared, and set these before them.

Happy Stamp Day, God Bless.

I have not made these but I know about them. I keep wanting only because hubby works for Frito Lay and I thought it would be fun to make them for his bosses as Christmas gifts.
