The Monday Recipe Blog
This blog features Lois Elaine Mueller's recipes every Monday. Lois' heyday was in the 1950's and 1960's, and her children swear she was the best cook that ever lived. Many baby boomers will remember these mouth-watering recipes, and these dishes are just as tasty today as they were in the sixties.
Today, we have a recipe for Brown Sugar Chews - these are walnut cookies, and Lois Elaine specialized in cookies, so you are going to love these! AND, the walnut is a super food....
Lois Elaine's Brown Sugar Chews:
1 c. packed brown sugar
1 t. vanilla
1/2 c. sifted flour
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. baking soda
1 c. coarsely-chopped walnuts
Stir together egg, brown sugar and vanilla. Add sifted flour with salt and baking soda. Add walnuts. Bake 18-20 minutes in a well-greased 8 inch square pan at 350 degrees. Cookies should be soft when taken from the oven. Cool in the pan. Cut in squares. Makes about 25 cookies.
