Potato Chip Cookies

Sandy Young


Linda, one of my friends in Pensacola, gave me this recipe in the 70s. Her husband, Jim, worked in our OTASCO store, and almost every day during the Christmas rush season, Linda would bring a fresh batch to the store for customers and employees to munch on while shopping or working. These have been a favorite of my family ever since those days!
