When researching different potato recipes, in the obscure hidden files of the internet, I stumbled across one rouge image of a potato cookie. After narrowing results, I then came across a few select posts about potato flake cookies.. Comments were few and far between and step by step pictures or videos were nonexistent. Taking a leap, I settled upon Crispy Potato Flake Cookies mostly because the cookies contained pecans.
Recipe was cut in half and followed to her specific instructions to the amount of egg used. Sugar, however, was reduced to just a half cup instead of three quarters. Coconut was replaced with quarter cup sweetened and quarter cup unsweetened as I feared the cookie being extremely sweet otherwise. Walnuts replaced pecans and were only lightly toasted instead of well toasted.
Scaled for Likability: Good
Really with no previous experiences and nothing to base results against, as long as the cookie was edible, I considered them a success.
Would I eat them again if served as modifications made? Yes, otherwise they would be too sweet to eat. Way to sweet.
Would I make them again? Maybe. They are a great way to use up coconut flakes and I would like to try with even less sugar, more flakes, and double the walnuts. If I could figure out how to keep them in a more ball shape like coconut macaroons, then dipping the base in bittersweet choc would be good.
