At home, I'm the baker and hubby's the cook, but there's one cookie that is his, all his.

It's from a cooking class that he took when he was very young, and the recipe is on a yellowed, stained index card. It's the only cookie he ever makes, and when he does, I hoard them and do not share :)

I've never made them myself, and probably never will. They're his.

Butterscotch Wafers
1 1/4 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter
2 cups brown sugar
2 well beaten eggs
1 1/2 cups chopped nuts

Preheat oven to 325.

Sift together flour, baking powder and salt.

Melt butter in a saucepan. Stir in sugar and mix well.

Remove from heat, then stir in eggs and sifted ingredients. Fold in chopped nuts. (He used macadamia nuts the last time, usually uses pecans.)

Drop by rounded teaspoons onto greased cookie sheet (he probably used the silpats) and bake for 13-15 minutes.

I love these when they're crunchy, so I'd go for the longer time.

We always have dark brown sugar, so I'm sure he uses that, and I love the brown-sugary-very-buttery flavor of these thin, crunchy cookies.
