The E.I.C. and the kids went to the Lions Book Fair this morning. Clutched in herself’s hands when she emerged is a new cookbook called Cookies! A Cookie Lover’s Collection. This american cook book looks to be a real winner. I mean how can it not be when you have 26 different recipes for chocolate chip cookies. Yes that’s right 26 recipes. Nom Nom Nom….
One that caught my eye is Giant Potato Chip Cookies, a chocolate chip cookie with chippies in them…
Giant Potato Chip Cookies
1 cup (250 mL) granulated sugar
1 cup (250 mL) packed brown sugar
1 cup (250 mL) vegetable shortening
2 teaspoons (10 mL) vanilla
2 cups (500 mL) all-purpose flour
1 cup (250 mL) uncooked old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup (125 mL) crushed potato chips
1 teaspoon (5mL) baking powder
1 teaspoon (5mL) baking soda
1 cup (250 mL) miniature candy-coated semisweet chocolate pieces (mini M&Ms)
1/2 cup (125 mL) chopped mixed nuts
Heat oven to 250 F(180 C). In a large mixing bowl combine sugars, shortening, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add flour, oats, potato chips, baking powder and baking soda. Beat at low speed until soft dough forms. Stir in chocolate pieces and nuts.
Drop dough by 1/4 cups (40 mL) 3 inches (8cm) apart onto un-greased cookie sheets. Bake for 13 – 16 minute or until golden brown. Cool for two minutes before removing from sheets.
