    Buster's friend's Note:

    These are too good not to have on the Christmas trays. Easy peasy too. Found on the Old Farmer's Almanac site. Delicious & great to have in the fridge to slice & bake with a cuppa something warm. The original posting states "You can double this recipe, make two cookie logs, and keep one in the freezer for slice-and-bake cookies on demand." I recommend hiding the second log... deep in the freezer. Note - may need up to 1 3/4 cups of all-purpose flour

      These turn out very nicely. They are crips and have a good flavor. Just what I was looking for. Everyone that has tried them like them too.

      These are delicious! I've kept them in the fridge for quicky warm cookies when the kids are back in from sledding. I left out the nuts but have each person decorate their own 'slices' with smarties, chocolate chips or a sprinkling of sugar. I've baked these successfully a few at a time in the toaster oven. So nice having these ready and waiting for warm cookies when 'needed' :-)
