Accordion Treats (D, TNT)
Source: "Best of the Bake-off" (1957 Grand Prize Winner!)
Yield: Varies

2 (1-yard) sheets heavy-duty foil
3/4 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
2 eggs
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 cup chopped walnuts, if desired

Heat oven to 325°F.

Fold 1 sheet of foil in half lengthwise. Fold the double-thickness foil crosswise into 1" pleats to make an "accordion-pleated" pan. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat with second sheet of foil.

In a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well.

Add flour and salt; mix well. Stir in walnuts.

Drop 1 rounded tsp. of dough into each fold of foil. (Dough spreads during baking to form 4-1/2" to 5" long cookies.)

Bake for 18 to 26 minutes or until golden brown. Remove cookies from foil; cool completely. Turn foil over for second baking.
