Mashed potatoes in cookies?! Unbelievable?! Sshhh, let's keep the secret to these can't-get-enough-of-'em Chocolate Potato Cookies until everybody tastes 'em!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup semisweet chocolate chips, melted
  • 1/2 cup unseasoned mashed potatoes, at room temperature (see Note)
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
  • 1 (16-ounce) container chocolate fudge frosting
  • 1/4 cup nonpareil candies
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Coat baking sheets with cooking spray.
     
  2. In a large bowl, cream together brown sugar and shortening until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and almond extract, mixing well. Add melted chocolate and mashed potatoes, beating until smooth.
     
  3. In a small bowl, combine flour, salt, and baking soda. Alternately add flour mixture and milk to brown sugar mixture, stirring until smooth. Mix in nuts. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto prepared baking sheets.
     
  4. Bake 10 minutes, or until cookies spring back when touched lightly with a finger. Remove cookies from oven and wait 2 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool slightly. Frost warm cookies and sprinkle with nonpareils.

Backwoods Pork Chops with River Gravy

We pour a river of gravy over these mouthwateringly juicy, fried pork chops to complete our recipe for Backwoods Pork Chops with River Gravy. Between the perfectly seasoned pork and the buttermilk-based gravy, we just can't decide what we like best!
