Today’s dunk-a-licious cookies were made by Lisa Rice. Drop into the Wolfville Memorial Library and have a sample. From Taste of Home: Grandma’s Favorites (pg. 197).
½ cup butter softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg, beaten
½ teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon cream of tartar
½ teaspoon salt
1 cup chopped walnuts, optional
In a mixing bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar. Add egg and vanilla; beat well. Combine dry ingredients; add to creamed mixture. Stir in nuts if desired. On a lightly floured surface, shape the dough into three 10-in. x 1-in. rolls. Tightly wrap each roll in wax paper. Freeze for at least 12 hours. Cut in to 3/8 in slices and place on greased baking sheets. Bake at 350° for 6-8 minutes. Remove to wire rack to cool. Yield about 7 dozen.
Lisa’s note: These can also just be rolled out and cut into shapes without freezing. Perfect with coffee, tea, or hot chocolate. Great for dunking!Don't forget-- you too can Enter to win a gift card. Show us YOUR cookies!
