I heard about potato chip cookies years ago...I looked up a few recipes for them and they seemed to vary greatly, some use white sugar,some use brown,some call for egg or egg yolk,some call for more or less potato chips,ridges,non ridges,butterscotch chips,etc,etc...But here is what I came up with and tastes SO good. I made them with and without pecans(my kids hate any kind of nut in cookies) and they are both very good...so I am making the pecans optional in this recipe.

How to Make POTATO CHIP PECAN SANDIES

Step-by-Step

  1. Beat softened butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and mix until combined.
  2. Stir in crushed potato chips,flour and pecans(if you are adding them),stir until the dough comes together as a ball.
  3. Make 1 inch balls and place on greased cookie sheet about 2 inches from each other.
  4. Lightly butter the bottom of a glass and dip into sugar and flatten dough balls slightly or flatten with a fork slightly.
  5. Bake at 350 for about 10 minutes...check at 8 minutes if your oven runs hotter...you don't want these to brown on the edge just slightly brown on the bottoms is the best. Enjoy
