You can double this recipe, make two cookie logs, and keep one in the freezer for slice-and-bake cookies on demand.

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
  • 1-1/4 cups packed brown sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts

Instructions:

Cream together butter and brown sugar until light. Add egg and vanilla, and mix well. Stir together flour, salt, and baking powder and add to dough, mixing well. Stir in nuts. Form dough into a 2-inch-diameter log and wrap in foil or waxed paper. Chill for 12 to 24 hours. Slice and bake on ungreased cookie sheets at 400 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes.

    Theses cookies have a great flavor. The only thing that I would recommend would be to place the dough on plastic wrap to form into the log.
