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!
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
- 3½ 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.

These are SO good, they will “make you want to slap somebody!”
There is no egg in the recipe. Is that correct?
That is correct 🙂 Mama Ann’s original recipe does not call for egg. Makes it allergy-friendly for our household of no egg, no nuts (which is why I omit the almond).
I have never heard of these but I love sweet n salty. Can you use Ruffles or do you use just plain chips? Ya’ll have a great day.
You can use Ruffles – I have before. Just crush them real good!
Thanks for the info and the recipe!
My potato chip cookies look a lot different, I use pecans instead of almonds, then flatten them with a glass covered in sugar. They’re amazing! Like sweet and salty shortbread!
Your recipe sounds just like the one that my Gramma Brininger used. Holy Schmoly are they delicious! I’m going to give these a try but roll them in balls and flatten them with a glass covered in sugar!
Christy thank you for posting this!!! My grandmother used to make these and we would raid the cookie jar when she did. I can’t wait to make these!
Are these sweet or salty????? Maybe both? Category is dessert right?????? Christy told me to ask. ~giggles.
Definitely both! All around deliciosity 🙂
but they do turn out tasting like sweet shortbread
I’ve pulled my bottom-of-the-bag bunch of chips from the pantry and am set to make cookies this rainy afternoon. Thanks for the privilege of being a guest in your kitchen Christy!
