Walnut Frosties


Cookie:
1/2 cup butter or margarine softened
1 cup dark brown sugar packed
1 egg well beaten
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
Dash salt


Filling: 
3/4 cup walnuts, finely chopped
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown sugar. Add the egg and 
vanilla. Beat well. Sift in the flour, baking soda and salt. Mix until 
well blended.
In small bowl, mix filling ingredients together and set aside. Drop pastry 
by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Make well in each cookie with 
your thumb and add a scant teaspoon of filling to each. The cookies will 
flatten as they bake. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until they are lightly 
browned. Cool cookies on wire racks. 

NOTE: These freeze perfectly and are so versatile and popular that 
I always make a double batch ..Schmitty.

Variation: Can substitute pecans for the walnuts. They taste wonderful but 
are more expensive.  Makes 30 cookies.
