I love cheese, especially when paired with fruit and bread!
So for the Superbowl party I went to last weekend, my mom (and I) made a very elaborate, colorful cheese plate, inspired by our favorite cheese plate in Puerto Vallarta.
Cheese, fruit, fruit spread, nuts, and chips!
Bonne Maman is the best brand for raspberry and fig preserves!
As I was taking these pictures my dog, Chief, desperately tried to get the cheese!
He is the cutest Blue Weimaraner pup but he is very bad and does not understand NO!
Once you have the savory, you have to make something really sweet. So we made potato chip cookies, which are super easy and only have a couple ingredients.
There are so many different recipes for potato chip cookies, and personally I like mine with brown sugar, not as much butter, and lots of potato chips! But these cookies were made using the recipe from Paula Deen: http://www.pauladeen.com/potato-chip-cookies
Potato Chip Cookie Recipe:
2cups (4 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup sugar
3 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups potato chips, coarsely crushed
1/4 cup confectioner’s sugar
In your mixer cream the butter and sugar. Then add in the flour and sugar. Once everything is mixed add 1-2 cups of potato chips that have been broken up into little pieces. Make small scoops of cookie dough with about 2″ in between each cookie on the cookie sheet. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until the edges are slightly browned.
