I was about to post my version of this recipe and found it was already here. My recipe calls for 1 cup crushed potato chips (I crush them before measuring by putting them in a ziplock baggie and using a rolling pin on them). I also don't roll or flatten mine, simply dropping them in teaspoonfuls in a greased baking sheet. It's lots of fun trying to get everyone to guess the secret ingredient...they never do!

FABULOUS! These are so easy and taste like Elves have been in the kitchen. A great copy of pecan sandies. Prepared for PAC Fall 2008

These cookies were a combination of buttery and crunchy. Very good.
