Potato chip cookies

My favorite part of Christmas is making cookies to give out to family and friends. I always have my traditional standbys, and then I love to find the odd little gems likes these.

I wanted to share them with you!!!

These are a fun variation of a butter cookie. Salty and sweet, dense and flaky.

1 c. butter
1/2 c. sugar
1 t. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 c. crushed potato chips

Cream butter, sugar and vanilla. Mix in flour and chips. Dough will be really sticky. Turn out onto a heavily floured surface and kneed in about 1/2 cup more flour. Carefully roll it out (it is tuff to work with) and cut into 2" circles. I used a small glass. Put on ungreased cookie sheet - 350 degrees for 13 minutes.

Let cool completely. Leave them as they are or make sandwich cookies out of them with a chocolate filling!

Chocolate Ganache
2 c. whipping cream
1 - 12 oz pkg semi sweet choc. chips

Bring the whipping cream to a simmer in a heavy sauce pan. Stir a lot so it won't scorch When it is simmering add the bag of choc chips. Stir til the chips have melted and continue to stir for about 4 more minutes.

Let the ganache COMPLETELY cool. It can take several hours. I make mine the nite before and keep it in a covered container in the ice box til I need to use it.

What is your favorite Christmas cookie?

Michelle of MiShel Designs sez it best -

"We all know it's pretty easy to hop around and shop all over Etsy, Artfire and many other super wonderful arts and craft sites, but sometimes it's a bit daunting and so this was developed (with some generous help from some very wonderful people, I might add!) to be a fun and enjoyable way to shop handmade and support the arts and crafts sector of the small business world during this very busy gift giving season!"

Michelle has put together a list of artist's and their work for you to enjoy. There is a great variety of talents and items for your shopping pleasure, and well in my case, if you don't see exactly what you are looking for, let me know - let's put our heads together and create that one of a kind custom piece just for you!
