Expert Tips

  • Toast nuts in shallow pan in 350ºF oven 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown.
  • Each time you slice a cookie, roll the roll of cookie dough a quarter turn to prevent flattening on one side.
  • Cookie dough can be frozen for up to 9 months. To freeze refrigerator cookie dough, wrap rolls of dough in foil or freezerproof wrap.
