My mom made these for us kids every year at Christmas, and I think I have made them for my family the past 26 years too!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350º.
  2. Mix butter, sugar, egg yolk and vanilla. Add flour and salt; blend well.
  3. Spread into greased 13x9 pan. Bake about 15 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven.
  4. Immediately sprinkle chocolate chips over top. Cover pan with a second cookie sheet so chips will melt. Spread chocolate evenly when melted. Sprinkle with walnuts.
  5. Cut into squares while still warm. Refrigerate as needed to set chocolate. These cookies freeze well.

Originally got this recipe from the best cook I know, my Aunt Helen. She recommended you wet your hands before spreading the dough in the pan. It works!

These were really good. Madethem in the middle of the night when I couldn't sleep. When the girls woke up this morning they were suprised and couldn't wait to take them in their lunch.
