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 cups 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.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Just give me a bowl of mashed potatoes and chocolate on top and I will call it a winner.

Are the potatoes mashed with butter and milk?

can these be made as a bar cookie?

I have made rolls with mashed potatoes and they are the most moist and fluffy rolls I've ever tried. These sound very promising.

I seem to remember candy made with mashed potatoes, any one else?

Sounds yummy. I will be trying this one.
