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!

    1. 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).

  2. 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!
