Starting with the dry ingredients:

COMBINE flour, baking soda and salt in small bowl.


Beat butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in large mixer bowl.

Add eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition;

gradually beat in flour mixture.

Stir in morsels and nuts. Drop by rounded tablespoon or ice cream scoop (meatball size) onto un-greased baking sheets.

BAKE: In preheated 375-degree [Fahrenheit] oven for 9 to 11 minutes or until golden brown. Let stand for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

I like to make tea cookies a teaspoon size or about a whole pecan size and I bake them about 6 minutes, lady size I call them.

PAN COOKIE VARIATION: PREPARE dough as above. Spread into greased 15"x10" jelly-roll pan. Bake in preheated 375-degree [Fahrenheit] oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan on wire rack.

FOR HIGH ALTITUDE BAKING ;INCREASE flour to 2 1/2 cups; add 2 teaspoonfuls water with flour; reduce both granulated sugar and brown sugar to 2/3 cup each. Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit.

Drop cookies bake for 8 to 10 minutes and pan cookies for 17 to 19 minutes.
