  • 1 cup powdered sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • Cream together butter and sugar. Add flour and vanilla – mix well. Add in crushed potato chips. Don't over mix.
  • Shape dough into 1 inch balls. Place on cookie sheet and bake for 7 – 10 minutes. These cookies should just barely show brown around the edges. The tops should be dry but not brown.
  • Remove cookies from oven and allow to cool for 5 minutes on a cookie sheet. After 5 minutes, transfer the cookies to a cooling rake. After completely cool roll the cookies in powdered sugar.
