Spicy Nut Slices

Cop Car, the ever helpful, sent me a copy of the recipe that I shared with her. She suggested in her blog that I post this recipe, and I said I would, as soon as I found it! *G*
Here’s the Spicy Nut Slices that Dear Husband likes so much:
Spicy Nut Slices
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp ground allspice
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup finely chopped almonds
Cream butter and sugars. Add eggs; beat well. Blend in vanilla. Stir flour with next 4 ingredients; stir into creamed mixture. Add nuts. Shape into two 9-inch rolls. Wrap in waxed paper or plastic wrap. Chill well. Cut into 1/4-inch slices; place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake at 375 degrees about 8 minutes. Cool 1 minute; remove from pans to a cooling rack. Makes 72.
We don’t use almonds. Usually Mother made them with pecans or walnuts. The two rolls can be rectangles with the upper edges rounded. We never get 72 cookies from this recipe, so we must be making over-sized cookies.
