Recipe Ingredients:

2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda

1 cup butter or margarine, cut into pieces
1 1/3 cups packed brown sugar

Cooking Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Combine flour and baking soda in medium bowl.
  3. Microwave morsels and butter in large, microwave-safe mixer bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; stir. Microwave at additional 10- to 20-second intervals, stirring until smooth. Beat in sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. Gradually beat in flour mixture; stir in nuts. Cover; refrigerate for about 1 hour or until firm. Shape into two 14 x 1 1/2-inch logs; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.
