An obvious ingredient in potato chip cookies is …. You’ve guessed it! Potato chips. Just imagining the crisp, salty chips against the sweet cookies makes my mouth water and my mind come to a halt. Let’s start baking with these ingredients:
|Unsalted butter, softened||½ cup or 1 stick|
|Granulated sugar||½ cup|
|Brown sugar||½ cup|
|Baking powder||1 tsp|
|Vanilla extract||1 tsp|
|Egg yolk||1 large|
|All purpose rolled oats||1 cup|
|All purpose flour||1 cup|
|Plain salted potato chips, gently crushed||1 cup|
- Preheat oven to 350 degree Fahrenheit, and line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Mix salt, baking powder, rolled oats, and flour together.
- cream softened butter until light. Add sugars and continue beating until fluffy. Add egg and mix well.
- Fold in the oat and flour mixture. Next come crushed potato chips. Dough will be stiff.
- Drop dough by tablespoonfuls onto prepared cookie sheets. Bake cookies for about 15 minutes or until they are beginning to brown around the edges.
- Carefully transfer these delicious sweet and salty cookies to wire racks to cool completely.
The potato chip cookies are perfect for mailing. If your potato chips come from foil-lined cardboard canisters, you will have custom-made mailing containers after you rinse and dry them thoroughly along with their plastic lids.
These containers can accommodate nicely a stack of drop cookies, each of about 2 and 1/2 inches in diameter. To cushion these cookies during transit, place crumpled paper towel at each end, and seal the top with a piece of plastic wrap before snapping on the lid.
You can even display your creativity or holiday spirit by wrapping these containers in decorative paper. Visit Mail Homemade Cookies for additional packing tips.
