Last night as my family and I were sitting on the deck with some great neighbors, my youngest asked me to make pickle dip. Since all of the boys in my life are spoiled (I mean loved!), I made some today. For those of you unfamiliar with pickle dip, it is a highly addictive dip that you eat with potato chips (or other chips to your liking if you so choose). The expectation from many friends and family members is to bring pickle dip when we are together. But then after all the dip is gone and you have left over, sometime stale, potato chips…make cookies!
- 2-8oz packages cream cheese
- 16 oz sour cream
- 32 oz jar Gedney Jalapeno Babies, finely chopped (*note: Wal-Mart does not carry these)
- ¼ to ½ c pickle juice
- Garlic salt to taste
- Cream sour cream and cream cheese together.
- Add pickles that have been finely chopped to creamed mixture.
- Mix in 1/4 to 1/2 c of the pickle juice from the Gedney Jalapeno Babies (amount depends on how “soupy” you want your dip).
- Add garlic salt to taste.
- Sit down and enjoy with potato chips or chips of your choice.
