Aunt Anne’s Ice Box Cookies

1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
2 cups flour
1 cup nuts, chopped

Cream butter and sugars. Add egg and flavoring and mix until well blended. Add sifted dry ingredients and nuts and mix together with hands. Shape into rolls, wrap in waxed paper and refrigerate until ready to bake. Slice thin and bake on greased cookie sheet 8-10 minutes at 350 degrees. Watch closely. Makes about 6 1/2 dozen rich cookies. Freezes well.

For an “I don’t know what to do now” day, slice the cookies frozen or refrigerated. Place on greased cookie sheet. Put colored sugars, cut raisins, cinnamon and sugar, etc., in muffin tins and let all the children decorate a pan of cookies. Have broom handy!
