My grandmother make these cookies. They are my family's favorite.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 1 cup butter
- 1 cup packed dark brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon maple flavored extract
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 1/2 cups chopped black walnuts
Cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg and add flavoring. Add in flour and baking powder dissolved in a couple drops of water. Add nuts and mix well.
Divide dough into thirds and roll into logs. Refrigerate until firm (about 1 hour.)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (205 degrees C).
Slice logs into thin cookies. Bake for 9 minutes or until light brown in color.
