Happy Valentine's Day to all my blogging buddies.....since I'm unable to give each of you a special Valentine treat I've decided to share with you an unusual recipe of my Grandmothers and a personal favorite of my Mom's.
Potato Chips Cookies:
Cream together 1/2 pounds of butter (two sticks, and yes, I do use butter - this is not the recipe to count calories)
1 cup of sugar plus 2 tablespoons
yoke from one egg
1 teaspoon of vanilla
Mix in 1 1/2 cups of flour
1/2 cup of plain flavored potato chips (crushed inside a large plastic bag, I don't crush too fine because I like to see bits of the potato chip still intact baked into the cookie)
1/2 cups chopped pecans
Bake spoonfuls on ungreased baking sheet @ 350 degrees. Hope you enjoy them ...
While I was baking and cleaning and giving both dogs a bath Man In Black was busy in the garage - remember the wood he bought last weekend at Home Depot???? Well, I asked for a new shelf in the kitchen and viola....he delivered.
I don't think I need to tell you who my Valentine has been for the past 32 years. Within five minutes after he stepped off the chair I was piling stuff on the shelf, he walked back in and said "I thought you were going to use it for something?" I said "I did, to hold more stuff". Now I'm hoping he'll make another one for the other doorway.
Wishing you a very happy Valentine's Day my friends!!!
