This was a specialty of Paul’s grandma, Angeline Abney. He makes them every Christmas and makes sure his wife, Ellen, eats one – even though she doesn’t like nuts.

1/2 C. butter or margarine
1 C. brown sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 C. flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 C. nuts, chopped
1 tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 400º. Cream butter or margarine and sugar. Stir in egg and dry ingredients. Add nuts and vanilla and stir until well blended. Form dough into log, wrap tightly in waxed paper, and refrigerate for several hours. Slice log into 1/2″ slices and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes.
