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).
Icebox Cookies:
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!
