Potato Chip Cookies

Now here's an interesting recipe.  I'm not really sure of the history of these but they date back to at least the 40's and probably before.  They originated in the Baltimore area with the Hutzler's Department Stores where they were sold at the lunch counter and bakery.

While there are many iterations to this recipe this is the best one, staying true to it's roots.  The flavor is slightly sweet, slightly salty with a crumbly texture that just melts in your mouth.  Use a thin standard flavor potato chip like Utz, Lays, Golden Flake, etc.

Potato Chip Cookies

1C Butter (2 sticks), softened
1/2C Sugar
1 1/2C Flour
1/2C Potato Chips, crushed
1/2C Chopped Nuts
1tsp Vanilla
1 Egg Yolk
Powdered Sugar

Cream together butter and sugar in mixer.  Add remaining ingredients (except powdered sugar) and beat together until well blended.  Preheat oven to 350°, drop cookie dough by teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake on center rack 15 mins.  Cool on wire rack and while slightly warm dust liberally with powdered sugar.
