2c Flour
1/2t Salt

Blend together-
¾ c Butter
1/2c Sugar
2 tsps.Almond extract (or you could use vanilla or peppermint)
1 Egg

MIX DRY INGREDIENTS INTO WET INGREDIENTS

1c Chopped nuts
1c Chocolate chips (chocolate mint chips are really good, too, or even peanut butter chips)

STIR WITH WOODEN SPOON OR HEAVY SPOON

Shape into 1” balls

Place on cookie sheet

Bake 350 for 15-20 minutes
