  • 6 Tablespoons butter
  • cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • cups flour all purpose
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ¾ cup walnuts chopped


  • Place butter, eggs, vanilla and sugar in a mixing bowl. Mix well with an electric mixer.

  • Preheat oven to 350°.


You may also add 1/2 cup of chopped dates, chocolate chips, or pecans, if desired.
