A cross between cookies and brittle, this adds variety to your holiday cookie repertoire.
INGREDIENTS (for 5 servings):
- 1 cup butter or margarine
- 1 cup granulated sugar
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups NESTLE® TOLL HOUSE® Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels
- 1 cup chopped nuts
PREHEAT oven to 375 degrees F.
BEAT butter, sugar, vanilla extract and salt in large mixer bowl. Gradually beat in flour. Stir in 1 1/2 cups morsels and nuts. Press into ungreased 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan.
BAKE for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and set. Cool until just slightly warm.
MICROWAVE remaining morsels in small, heavy-duty plastic bag on HIGH (100 percent) power for 30 to 45 seconds; knead. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag; squeeze to drizzle over cookie. Allow chocolate to cool and set; break cookies into irregular pieces.
NOTE: Omitting nuts could cause cookie to become dry.
