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!
