Ice Box Cookies

makes 4-5 dozen

1 lb. packed dark brown sugar
½ lb. butter
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup finely chopped nuts
2 cups flour, sifted

Cream butter and sugar. Beat in egg, vanilla, and nuts. Stir in flour. Roll dough into one or two logs (about 1-1/2 inches in diameter), wrap in wax paper, and refrigerate. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350F. Cut logs into thin slices and place on a baking sheet 2 inches apart. Bake 4-5 minutes. Watch carefully as they burn easily. Cool 30 seconds, then transfers to wire racks to cool.
