Ingredients

2
(1-yard) sheets heavy-duty foil
3/4
cup margarine or butter, softened
3/4
cup sugar
1
teaspoon vanilla
2
eggs
1
cup Pillsbury BEST® All Purpose or Unbleached Flour
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/2
cup chopped walnuts, if desired
  • 1 Heat oven to 325°F. Fold 1 sheet of foil in half lengthwise. Fold the double-thickness foil crosswise into 1-inch pleats to make an "accordion-pleated" pan. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat with second sheet of foil.
  • 2 In large bowl, combine margarine and sugar; beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. Add flour and salt; mix well. Stir in walnuts. Drop rounded teaspoon of dough into each fold of foil. (Dough spreads during baking to form 4 1/2 to 5-inch long cookies.)
