Today, all over the country, Labor Day picnics and cookouts are in full swing and, chances are, there are going to be some leftovers that can be made real good use of, which gave me an idea because, here at the station today, our team is busy at work, and I'd like to thank them with a special treat. It starts with something you very often have left over: potato chips! Yes, potato chips. Watch: In a bowl, we beat together some butter and sugar, and then slowly blend in flour and vanilla extract. Now we fold in some coarsely crushed potato chips - that's the secret ingredient! Okay, we drop our batter, by the teaspoonful, onto a cookie sheet, flattening each one with a fork. And after just 20 minutes in a 300-degree oven, when they're golden around the edges, done! Remove them to a wire rack to cool, and they're great just that way, but maybe drizzle them with some melted chocolate or a sprinkling of confectioners' sugar. Believe me, when we put a platter of these out to nibble on, with the "can't get enough of it" combo of salty and sweet, they're going to disappear in no time! Look, the recipe for my "Potato Chip Cookies" is online now for making good use of those leftover chips. Maybe you'll want to go out and pick up some chips on purpose! They're that super! Now, I'm off to the newsroom to say thanks for all they do throughout the year - and share all the "OOH IT'S SO GOOD!! "
