"Once you prepare the dough, it can be saved (even frozen!) to be used later. Perfect for when your young student informs you he volunteered a dozen cookies ... tomorrow!"

Directions

  1. In a medium bowl, cream the butter with the white sugar and brown sugar. Stir in the eggs and vanilla. Sift together the flour, baking soda, cream of tartar, cinnamon and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, mix in the nuts. Divide dough into 3 equal parts, shape each piece into a log about 1 1/2 inches in diameter. Wrap logs in wax paper and chill for 3 hours or overnight.
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Cut dough logs into 1/4 inch slices and place them on an unprepared cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, until light brown.

I really like these cookies. They remind me of Chocolate Chip cookies with out the chocolate chips. I was worried about the 400 baking temp but it worked out fine although mine were done at about 7 minutes. Nice crispy edge and a slightly chewy middle. Oh, they do spread so I ended up doing 8 to a sheet.

A solid cookie recipe. I made this originally so I could just pop a couple in the oven now and then when my sweet tooth got the best of me. It pairs REALLY well with dark tea. I did notice that it was done at 7 minutes, though I left it until 8. At 8 minutes when it cools down it resembles more of a ginger snap consistency (I didn't add nuts, none on hand!), but it makes a really good thing to dip into your tea! Also, if you don't have cinnamon, you can mix up whatever you want to add. I used 2 tsp cake spice, but I'm willing to bet pumpkin spice or any combination of allspice, nutmeg, etc., would make wonderful additions/substitutions. Enjoy!!! (ps - 1 tsp baking soda and 2 tsp cream of tartar is really just 3 tsp baking powder!)
