Potato Chip Cookies
I’m excited to have a guest in our kitchen today on SouthernPlate.com. Please welcome Tricia from Hodge Podge Mom as she shares her grandmother’s recipe for potato chip cookies! I can’t wait to make these – Thank you so much Tricia!
Hey Everyone! Thank you for letting me visit with you here on Southern Plate today.
I grew up on potato chip cookies. Didn’t realize they weren’t your normal variety until I was much older and got the questionable look from others.
This special recipe is from my grandmother, Mama Ann and it is a great use for those bottom of the bag, left-over, nobody wants to eat potato chips. Just try it! They taste like shortbread and are so EASY to make!
I just mix up those crushed chips, some flour, butter, vanilla, and sugar, bake them in the oven and you’ve got cookies!
I hope you’ll get to try these soon!

- 2 -1/2 oz almonds (Optional, I omit them)
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup crushed potato chips
- 3 1/2 cups all purpose flour
- Grease cookie sheet(s).
- Cream together butter and sugar, then vanilla.
- Alternate adding in chips and flour.
- Add almonds last.
- The dough will have a dry consistency so you may have to squish it together some with your hands to form the cookies.
- Bake in 350 degree oven for 15-20 minutes.
