When I am stressed...

...I cook, bake, cook, bake, cook, bake and eat almost everything in make! (seeing how things have been going for us these past few months - no wonder I gained almost 10 lbs which I so don't need).

One of my favorite recipes that I tend to "turn to" when I am feeling down and out is...

my very own "Potato Chip Cookies" recipe!

They are truly as good as they look and super easy to make...

All you need is...

a preheated oven set at 375

1/2 lb of butter (2 sticks at room temperature)
1/2 cup of sugar
1 1/2 cups of flour
1 1/2 cups of crushed potato chips (ridged or ruffled chips work best)
1 tsp of vanilla extract

Combine all ingredients and mix until semi creamy (batter won't become completely smooth because of the chips)

using a teaspoon, drop prepared cookie dough on a non-greased cookie sheet

bake at the 375 oven temperature for 10 - 12 minutes

once removed from oven, let them stand to a semi cool than remove them from the cookie sheet to finish the cooling process on a raised rack.

and last but not least...Top with some powder sugar!

(recipe makes 2 dozen cookies)

These are truly one of my favorite recipes that took me many years to "tweak" to perfection! They are a hit with adults and kiddos...because of their buttery & salty taste! As for my family, one batch is never enough and in our house this recipe is one of the more popular requested!

(OK I have to admit here that I had another post all-ready-and-set to go but I removed it. It's just that I have been doing a lot of thinking lately and have been evaluating almost everything and everyone surrounding my life...all in all I see some changes coming...)

I read your blog and love keeping up on your news - and hope and pray that all now goes well and quickly to bring Benjamin home! Thanks for this recipe - I am baking some right now and already tasted one of the first batch to find out just how yummy they are! And they're so easy to make too! Take good care! Good thoughts coming to you from Wisconsin! Fiona

I made those cookies tonight. They are really, really good! I was surprised that they didn't require eggs, but they weren't necessary. Caroline had fun crushing the chips and helping me add the ingredients to the mixer. Delicious! I'm going to make them for the next church gathering and see what kind of reaction I get.
