This is the perfect summer time cookie. It’s light, fresh and has that not so secret ingredient that will keep people asking for more. I learned of this cookie recently while visiting friends in Mineral Wells – a small town I lived for a year with my parents and brother when my father was in the army. A dear family friend had passed away – one of my parents’ dearest friends – so my brother, his wife and I made the trip down to Texas to say goodbye. The day we left a friend gave us some cookies for the road (plane ride) and had us try to figure out the secret ingredient. I guessed love, but that wasn’t it.
Potato Chips are the secret ingredient.
And a pound of butter!
But no eggs so if you’re watching your cholesterol these are totally the right cookie.
That’s a lie – these are not healthy cookies, but they delicious and melt in your mouth and perfect for a summer holiday when you want something a little sweet and a little salty.
