I have inherited a collection of my Grandmother’s recipes. This recipe was in her collection and at first when I saw “potato chip” cookies, it didn’t sound very good but actually they are absolutely delicious. I recommend this recipe for someone who loves the salty/sweet combo. One could also add some chocolate chips if so desired. But just the way it is is delicious.

I made this for the first time in last week being that we have been in lock down with the Corona Virus Pandemic, I am baking up a storm and plan on doing more if possible. My grandma had a lot of recipes she used and I have a goal to try out these new/old recipes and to share them with my readers. I hope you all enjoy.

Here is a poem that I found in one of her old cookbooks:

Little Things

A smile, a touch, a clasp of hands,

A tender word or two ,

Can coax the sunshine from the clouds

And turn the skies to blue.

It’s not great gifts of wealth and fame,

That make our lives worthwhile,

But all the little kindnesses

That bring the biggest smile. J. Meier

Hope everyone reading this is okay with this whole corona virus thing. Stay safe and bake on.
