Pecan Crunch Cookies

Pecan Crunch Cookies

1 cup (2 sticks) margarine-softened
1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 cup crushed plain potato chips (Ruffles is a good one)
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 cups flour

Cream margarine, sugar & vanilla. Add chips & pecans. Stir in flour, blend well.

Drop from spoon (or shape into balls) onto cookie sheet. Press with fork dipped in sugar.

Bake at 350 for 16-18 minutes or until edges just start to turn tan.

My mom gave me this recipe, I have not got a chance to try them yet but she says they are really good and she likes them because they are not as overly sweet as some cookies.

Ok, this is a dumb question but.. what's oleo? Is it like Crisco (vegetable lard)?

You know I just copied what my mom had wrote down and didn't think about it. Oleo is just what she calls margarine. LOL. Come to think of it, I will have to ask her why she calls it that.

I changed the recipe to say "margarine" instead of oleo so it isn't confusing for those that have never talked to my mom before. ;-)
