Ingredients:
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) butter
2 eggs
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions:
1. Combine the sugar and butter until creamy, then add in the eggs and beat again.

2. Combine all the dry ingredients except the nuts. Gradually add into this the sugar-and-egg mixture until a dough is formed. Then add the vanilla and nuts.

3. Roll the dough into 2 rolls about 2 inches in diameter, then wrap and store them in the "icebox" overnight.

4. Slice the dough very thinly, approximately 1/4-inch thick, and bake at 350 degrees F on an ungreased cookie sheet for 9 minutes, or until golden brown on the bottom.

Makes 3 dozen cookies
