Brown Sugar Icebox Cookies

Recipe Ingredients:

3 1/2cupsifted all purpose flour
1tspbaking soda
1cupbutter or margarine, softened
2cupfirmly packed light brown sugar
1tspvanilla extract
1cupfinely chopped walnuts and pecans

Recipe Instructions:

1.   Sift flour with baking soda and salt; set aside. In large bowl of electric mixer at medium speed, beat butter until light. Gradually beat in sugar. Add eggs and vanilla; continue beating until very light and fluffy.
2.   At low speed, beat in half the flour mixture until smooth. Mix in the rest, with hands, to form a stiff dough. Add nuts, mixing to combine well.
3.   Turn out dough onto lightly floured surface. Divide into thirds. With hands, shape each third into a roll 8 inches long. Wrap each roll in saran or foil. Refrigerate until firm - about 8 hours, or overnight - before slicing and baking. (Rolls may be stored in refrigerator a week or 10 days and baked fresh as desired)
4.   Preheat oven to 375F. With sharp knife, cut as many 1/8-inch slices as desired for baking at one time. Re-wrap rest of roll and refrigerate.
5.   Place slices 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 7-10 minutes, or until lightly browned. Remove to wire rack to cool. Makes about 16 dozen.
