Potato Chip Cookies

  • Yield: About 3 1/2 dozen


  • 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted pecans
  • 1/2 cup finely crushed potato chips
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
  • Chocolate Sauce, for dipping, optional


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  • In a large bowl, cream together the butter, 1/2 cup of the sugar, and vanilla. Add the toasted pecans and potato chips and stir well. Add the flour and stir to combine.
  • Place the remaining 1/2 cup sugar in a shallow bowl.
  • Form the mixture into small balls, about 1 tablespoon each, and place on an ungreased baking sheet.
  • Dip the bottom of a heavy flat-bottomed glass in the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and flatten the cookies on the baking sheet, dipping in sugar before flattening each cookie. Bake the cookies until light golden brown, 14 to 16 minutes.
  • Using a spatula, transfer the cookies to a wire rack to cool. (The cookies will keep in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 3 days.) When cookies have cooled, dip 1 half of each cookie in the chocolate sauce, if desired. Let harden on a wire rack.
