I’m excited to start posting vintage recipes in a series I like to call “Angie’s Kitchen.” Get it? (Hint: read the “about” section if you don’t!)
I needed something simple to start with, since I have so many other Christmas preparations going on. What sounds simpler than potato chip cookies?
After looking through tons of Angie’s old recipes, I settled on this one from the 1971 Polish Women’s Civic Club Cookbook. I followed the recipe almost exactly, though I did add a little sugar. In my opinion, if the cookie dough doesn’t taste good, there’s a problem!
Potato Chip Cookies
1 c. butter, softened
1 egg yolk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. sugar
1 1/2 c. flour
1/2 c. crushed potato chips
1/2 c. chopped nuts (I used walnuts)
Just mix all ingredients together (adding nuts and chips last). Drop by rounded teaspoon onto parchment paper lined baking sheets. I use a small ice cream scoop for this, it makes the cookies look more uniform.
Bake at 350F for 10-15 minutes, or until the edges are just golden brown. These would also taste good if you rolled them in powdered sugar right after they come out of the oven or dipped them in chocolate after they cool.
I can’t wait to dig up more recipes to share with you guys! What cookies are you baking up for the holidays?
