I love cookies! I have been having some fun going through my mom's recipes. One of the items I brought home with me, from her house, was her old cookbook. It is the book that I remember her using the most while I was growing up. I found this cookie recipe in that book. I am sorry, the title of the book escapes my memory and the book is so well used, that the covers are missing!! :)
Caramel Nut Slices
1/2 cup soft shortening(I used butter)
1 cup brown sugar(packed)
1 3/4 cup flour
1/4 cup salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 finely chopped nuts(I wasn't in the mood for nuts and left them out)
Mix shortening(butter), sugar, and egg thoroughly. Sift together and stir in flour, salt, baking soda. Blend in nuts.
Form into two log shaped rolls, 2 " in diameter. Wrap in waxed paper, or parchment paper, and chill overnight. Heat oven to 400 degrees F. Cut slices 1/8" thick; place a little apart on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes, until set but not hard. About 6 doz cookies.
Note: I didn't use the nuts and cut my cookies a little thicker. I ended up with 4 doz cookies.
Hope you enjoy these as much as we have!!!
