Ingredients

  • ½ cup butter

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

  • 1 egg white

  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Cream together butter or margarine and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition.

  3. Spread dough in 9 x 13 inch greased baking pan, and sprinkle chopped nuts over top.
