Recipe Thursday


This weeks recipe comes from ""Our Favorite Desserts" Favorites From Home Economics Teachers. The copyright in the book is 1967.
I had alot of things I needed (wanted) to do last night so I decided to make a quick snack for DH and Yngwie when they came back from running their errands. So I chose Shoestring Potato Cookies. This is a super simple recipe and requires no baking which is perfect for hot summer evenings.

Shoeestring Potato Cookies:

2- 6oz. pkgs of butterscotch chips
3-tbls of peanut butter
1- 4oz. can of shoestring potatos (These are potato sticks found in the potato chip aisle)
1 cup chopped nuts (I didn't use any nuts, I used more potato sticks)










Melt butterscotch and peanut butter. Pour over shoestring potatoes and nuts. Stir gently.Drop onto waxed paper on a cookies sheet by tablespoons. Put in freezer to set. Remove from freezer as soon as firm.
How easy is that?? They are very much like "haystacks" that are made with the chinese noodles but with the potato sticks you get that salty/sweet thing going on that I love.
So thank you Mrs. Rowena Ballew of Richland High School in Fort Worth Texas for sharing your delicious recipe.
Have a blessed day everyone!
Linda

I make these with the chinese noodles as you described and it's one of my family's favorite treats - I'll have to try this version soon! The mixture of sweet and salty sounds yummy.
