Potato Chip Cookies

I remember my grandma making these amazing cookies for my brother and me when we were young. They are a delicious combination of slightly sweet with a little bit of salt and have a rich buttery crunch. They remind me of shortbread, but the potato chips just add that something "extra." Make these for your next holiday cookie exchange!

Potato Chip Cookies
1 pound butter (yep, 4 sticks), softened
1 cup sugar
3 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 cups potato chips, crushed (Lays without ridges are perfect)
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 cup powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray baking sheets with nonstick spray or use a silpat mat or parchment paper.
Mix butter, sugar and vanilla until creamy. Add flour a little bit at a time into bowl. Gently fold in the potato chips. Put spoonfuls on greased baking sheet. Dip the bottom of a glass in powdered sugar and press on each ball of dough.  Bake until cookies are golden, about 15 minutes. Remove and cool on racks. Enjoy!
