Butterscotch Slice Cookies
Yield 8 dozen cookies
1 cup butter, room temperature
2 cups brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts
3 cups sifted flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
In a medium mixing bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl using a hand mixer, cream together butter, brown sugar and vanilla. Add eggs one at a time. Add flour mixture one cup at a time and mix well. Stir in chopped nuts.
Place dough on wax paper and form into 2-inch rolls. Refrigerate overnight.
Preheat oven to 375º F. Slice into 1/8 inch slices and bake on an ungreased baking sheet for 5 to 6 minutes.
Allow to cool slightly before removing from baking sheet.
Notes from the Paula Deen Test Kitchen: Makes a great cookie to be served with tea or coffee. Dough freezes well. Dough is easier to cut when frozen. If using this method, allow cookies to sit 3-4 minutes on a cool baking sheet before baking.
I have learned something new. It has been quite a while since I have been to a baby shower, and I am now prepared and up-to-date. I love the term "sprinkles" and it is nice to know that men are also invited to partake in the excitement! Thank you for a fun article!

Susan Lott is a great party planner! She has tons of great ideas that she needs to share with the online world. I have been begging her to start a Facebook page or Etsy account. The graduation gift that she made me was hand drawn with my name and different definitions for each letter. She framed it and I cherish it.....I also would have paid about $50 for it in a store. Thanks for sharing her idea but this idea is nothing compared to some of her other quick and money saving tips! You should hire her for your creative team!
Love you Susu!
