I like simple cookies and nothing is easier than these Brown Sugar Cookies. You make the dough, pat it into a log and cover it with plastic wrap and refrigerate it until it is chilled and you can slice it in 1/4" slices. That's it, how simple is that? You can use either light or dark brown sugar and your choice of nuts. I like the Slivered Almonds and English Walnuts best. But that is totally a personal choice. Have fun and enjoy. You can also bake a dozen and keep the rest of the dough in the refrigerator for another day.
Brown Sugar Refrigerator Cookies
1/2 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar (light or dark)
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
Cream butter, add brown sugar and vanilla. Add egg and nut meats, mix well. Mix and sift flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda and add to butter, sugar and egg mixture. Pat dough into a roll and wrap in plastic wrap and chill until stiff enough to slice into 1/4" slices and bake at 350F degrees for about 10-11 minutes. This recipe makes approximately 2 dozen cookies if dough is sliced 1/4 inch in thickness.
Till next time.....
