Potato Chip Cookies Recipe

The first week in December is National Cookie Cutter Week and December 4 is Cookie Day. And most of you probably already know December is the most popular month for Cookie Exchange Parties too. Now with cookie exchanges and the holiday season too; we all like to show off our neat recipes to our family & friends. Today I'm posting my personal photos and recipe for Potato Chip Cookies that's just perfect for gift giving.

Potato Chips in Cookies??  
Yes! This is a favorite cookie recipes because it's so unusual and so fast to make. And the neat thing is, there's no eggs, water or milk in these cookies! I've made them for years, they cook up to be very crunchy with the pecans & potato chips. If you enjoy foods that are sweet & salty at the same time, then you will love these cookies! They are just that.... very sweet and lightly salty.

Cookies as Gifts:
Ohhh yessss!  You gotta love this one!  This recipe is excellent for a bagged gift or even a gifts-in-a-jar. The reason I say that is because it's so easy to make the cookies all the same size by pushing down with the bottom of a jar. I put a video about it some time ago on youtube so please feel free to go watch. 

This recipe is absolutely perfect for gift giving. This cookie is not the every-day-of-the-mill cookie so giving it makes it fun and special. Everybody loves the uncommon cookie & I'm sure you'll love it too.

Make your cookies thick. The dough doesn't flatten out during cooking like many recipes do. They hold their shape in cooking & stay really thick. Their uniform size makes it easy to pack in bags or jars.

I love this cookie too! I watched your youtube video a year ago and made them. You used a lot of butter. That butter didn't look like stick butter. Was it? I used room temp stick butter.

I agree the type of potato chip makes the difference. I tried thin chips and didn't like it. I tried ruffles like you suggested and loved it.
