A cross between cookies and brittle, this treat adds variety to your holiday cookie repertoire.
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup granulated sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 (12-ounce) package NESTLÉ TOLL HOUSE Semi-Sweet Chocolate Morsels - divided use
1 cup chopped nuts
- Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
- Beat butter, sugar, vanilla extract and salt in a large mixing bowl. Gradually beat in flour. Stir in 1½ cups morsels and nuts. Press into ungreased 15x10-inch jelly-roll pan.
- Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown and set. Cool until just slightly warm.
- Microwave remaining morsels in a small, heavy-duty plastic bag on HIGH power for 30 to 45 seconds; knead. Microwave at additional 10 to 20-second intervals, kneading until smooth. Cut tiny corner from bag; squeeze to drizzle over cookie. Allow chocolate to cool and set; break cookies into irregular pieces.
