Brown Sugar Cookies
By Paula Deen
- Prep time: 30 minutes
- Cook time: 1 hour
- Servings: 4 1/2 dozen
- 1 cup at room temperature butter
- 2 cups packed brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons vanilla extract
- 2 eggs
- 2 cups self rising flour
- 2 cups chopped walnuts or pecans
Pre-heat the oven to 375 °F.
In a bowl, cream the butter and sugar, then beat in the vanilla. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well. Add the flour 1/2 cup at a time, continuing to beat. Stir in the nuts.
Drop the dough by heaping tablespoon onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until golden brown.
Variation: For variety, you may want to add chocolate chips or coconut flakes. Sometimes I add both, depending on my mood.
