Recipe by ChefMei
Really simple sugar cookie that will be gone before they cool. That's why I usually make 2 batches, one for that day, and one for later. Edited 8/10 to reduce saturated fat and cholesterol.

This recipe definitely lives up to its name ! My aunt makes this exact recipe for my dad every year for his Xmas present. I, of course, make sure to get my fill while I'm at their house, since I don't live so close to them anymore. Very butterscotchy tasting, which I love ! Thanks for posting :)
- 1⁄2 cup unsalted butter
- 1⁄2 cup Smart Balance Omega Plus
- 1 cup walnuts
- 1⁄2 cup cholesterol-free egg substitute
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups brown sugar
- 3 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
Directions See How It's Made
- Cream butter and sugar.
- Add eggs, and vanilla, and mix well.
- Sift salt, soda, and flour, add nuts.
- Mix dry ingredients into butter mixture.
- Divide dough in 4 parts.
- Make into logs 1 inch or so wide in wax paper.
- Put in "ice box" (this was my grandmother's recipe) overnight, or if in a hurry, freezer for 15-30 minutes.
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Turn out cooled dough onto very lightly floured board.
- Slice very thin, not potato chip thin, but no more than 1/4 inch. Space them 1 inch apart.
- Bake until crisp and very, very lightly browned, about 5-6 minutes. The thicker you slice them, the longer the cooking time.
- Enjoy with milk.
- Share with your family, friends, and coworkers, but make sure to save some for yourself.
