These are some of the best potato chip cookies I have ever had. They are crunchy, salty, and just the right amount of sweet. The chocolate chips on top are a nice touch too.
I love how these cookies are made with real potatoes and not potatoes from a can. I think it’s important to make food from scratch as often as possible because it tastes so much better than anything you can buy at the store.
The recipe for these cookies is very simple too, which is great because most of my time is spent cooking for my family instead of baking for them.
- ½ kg of potatoes
- 1 heaped tablespoon of flour
- 1 heaping tablespoon of breadcrumbs
- 1 small egg
- 1 knob of butter
- 2 tablespoons of ham cubes
- 2 tablespoons of crispy fried onions
- Salt, pepper, or seasoning of your choice
- Beaten egg for brushing
- Peel the potatoes cut them, and boil them with water and salt. When they are cooked, drain and transfer them to a bowl.
- Mash them to a puree, add the butter, and mix. Add the egg, the spices, and the salt. Mix again.
- Add the breadcrumbs, stir and add the flour in the form of rain and in several times until we have a manageable but soft dough. Let it rest for a while covered by a plastic film (half an hour), so that the dough is absorbed and takes the body.
- Add the diced ham and the crispy onion, mix until the dough is homogeneous.
- Dust with flour the plateau or a plastic film on which we will extend the dough to a thickness of approximately one centimeter.
- We cut circles with a cookie cutter, and with the cuts, we repeat the spreading and cutting of cookies until the dough is finished.
- We put them on the baking tray on baking paper or Teflon. Paint first with oil or melted butter and then with beaten egg. They can be sprinkled with sesame or salt flakes.
- Bake in a preheated oven at 200º until golden brown. They can be baked a little longer if we want them crispy.
- Serve hot as a garnish for meats and roasts.
- If we have made them in advance, put them in the microwave for one or two minutes to heat them.
