Potato Chip Cookies

My dear cousin sent these cookies to me for Christmas (part of a glorious love-package that I will not even begin to describe. But these cookies are almost my favorite thing). And I must share the recipe because they are so, so good. If you like those Danish wedding cookies, these are similar, but about twice as good. They have great crunchy/crispy/crumbly texture.
1 pound of butter
1 cup of white sugar
2 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups all purpose flour
2 cups crushed Lay's Potato Chips (Don't use baked chips, just regular)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Mix butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and continue to mix. Add the flour one cup at a time until well blended. Fold in crushed potato chips and drop by teaspoon on to cookie sheet. You can also add chopped pecans. Bake for about 15 minutes (some ovens vary) Remove from oven and let cool. Dust with powdered sugar.

Makes 5 dozen cookies. / 100 cookies

All I can say by way of confession is that no other family member has eaten one of these cookies yet. And they're not going to. They are MINE.
