Buttery and nutty refrigerator cookies made with brown sugar for a caramel flavor.
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 1/2 cup butter, room temperature
- 2 cups packed brown sugar
- 3 eggs
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
- 1/2 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, cream together butter and brown sugar until smooth. Beat in the eggs one at a time then stir in the vanilla. Sift together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt; blend into the creamed mixture. Mix in the walnuts. Form dough into long roll about 2 inches in diameter. Wrap in waxed paper and refrigerate overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease cookie sheets or line with parchment paper. Unwrap the roll of dough and using a sharp knife, slice the roll into 1/4 inch coins. Place cookies 2 inches apart onto the prepared cookie sheets.
