I Can't Believe I sifted the Flour Buttery Potato Chip Cookies

Annette W.


These cookies came to be from me finding a childhood recipe for Potato chip cookies that I loved. I sat down to make them one afternoon and sifted the flour when the recipe did not call for it to be sifted. Needless to say the dough was like sand. I attempted to make the first batch by forming cookies out of this sand like dough but they didn't do anything in the oven. I decided to improvise. I added 1 1/2 sticks of softened butter to make the dough wet enough to roll cookies. I also added more potato chips and almonds. OMG is all I'm sayin! Oh and BUTTERY!

Recipe and pictures are my own.

How to Make I Can't Believe I sifted the Flour Buttery Potato Chip Cookies


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease cookie sheet or line with parchment paper.
  2. Cream together butter and sugar, then vanilla.
  3. Alternate adding in potato chips and flour.
  4. Stir in almonds last.
