Easy Potato Chip Cookies

One of my favorite snacks is a Frito with peanut butter on top. I know it sounds crazy (at least Chicken Legs said so), but it tastes really good. Well, if you love Fritos and peanut butter like I do! 

I started to wonder what a peanut butter cookie with Fritos in it would taste like. I decided to give it a whirl. Well, it tastes great. Even Chicken Legs agreed! Sweet and salty in one bite!!! The cookies were soft with a little crunch from the Fritos. We both had a hard time controlling ourselves around these cookies!

How to Make Peanut Butter Frito Cookies

These cookies are very easy to make. Mix together sugar, brown sugar, butter, shortening, and peanut butter. Add the eggs and vanilla. Add flour and baking soda. Mix in crushed Frito corn chips. Scoop cookie dough and roll cookie dough balls in sugar. Place on a cookie sheet and bake.

  • Can use smooth or crunchy peanut butter.
  • You can scoop the cookie dough and freeze the dough balls for a quick treat later,
  • Can freeze baked cookies for later. I store them in ziplock freezer bags.

  2. recipie states combine the sugars and then when cookies are mixed to roll them in sugar so do you need more than the one cup of white sugar???

  3. Peanut butter and Fritos… eh, I dunno… But I'll try anything once or twice. Guess I shall be making these in the morning to see how they are. lol
