We got this recipe from a special neighbor who was like a grandmother to me. Chill them and slice them very thin before baking.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 2 cups margarine
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- 1 cup white sugar
- 3 eggs
- 5 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 pinch salt
- 1 cup chopped walnuts
Cream the margarine and the sugars together. Add the eggs and mix well.
Stir in the flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt and chopped nuts. Shape dough into 2 inch to 2 1/2 inch diameter sized logs. Wrap logs and refrigerate overnight.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease baking sheets.
Slice logs very thing and place cookies on the prepared sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 8 to 10 minutes.
