When I was younger, my mom used to work at a B & B and when I would stop by, they would always have these cookies in the dining room for guests. I would always sneak a few. I couldn’t resist. They were just too good. I don’t know where the recipe originated and the B & B is gone. Fast forward many years and these are hands down my husband’s most favorite cookie. The great thing about them (besides the yumminess) is that they freeze well. You can throw these babies in a bag and stash them in the freezer. If you know you’re going to have guests coming, take a few out.
I have to point out, the recipe calls for both butter and margarine. Don’t skip this step. Make sure you use both, or they just won’t turn out. Onto the recipe!
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup margarine, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 tablespoon white vinegar
1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup finely chopped nuts
Pre-heat oven to 300 degrees F.
Cream together butter and margarine using electric mixer. Add sugar and vinegar and beat until fluffy. Sift flour and soda and add to butter mixture. Mix butter and flour mixtures together by hand. Stir in nuts. Dough will be fairly dry. Drop by teaspoon fulls onto parchment lined baking sheet. Bake for 25 minutes. Remove from baking sheet, cool and enjoy!
