Special request of CZB and Novice! This is a family recipe that we always make and I am happy to share.
Heat oven to 325 degrees first.
1/2 cup light Karo
1/2 cup butter
2/3 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup finely chopped nuts (I use pecans)
Combine butter, corn syrup and sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil, then remove from the heat. Gradually blend in flour and nuts.
Drop by teaspoons on a greased cookie sheet 3" apart. NO CLOSER.
Bake at 325 degrees for 8-10 mnutes until golden brown & bubbly around edges.
Cool 1 minute. Yes,one. Remove carefully from cookie sheet one at a time
and fold over a wooden spoon handle. If any cookie gets too hard, just put back in oven a minute.
They are so pretty just like that. My Aunt sometimes dips both ends of the cookie in chocolate, also very popular.
This is my rule: if you mess up any and they don't look right, you must eat the evidence right away.
