Ingredients:  
3/4 cup (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter

1/2 tsp salt
1 large egg slightly beaten

Directions:
Preheat oven to 325. Line large cookie sheet with parchment paper. don't skip this step. Melt butter in medium sauce pan. Remove from heat. Stir in nuts, sugar, flour, orange peel and salt; then stir in egg. Drop a tablespoon of dough on pan about three inches apart. These cookies really spread out. Experiment with how much dough makes how big a cookie. Bake for about 14 minutes. Gently slide parchment paper with cookies on it onto a cooling rack. cool completely and transfer to a paper towel which will absorb the extra grease. I haven't tried it but think these are cookies that you can manipulate while warm to form a tube. some people drizzle with chocolate but I like them "as is".

Personal Notes:
My girlfriend Ellen Young Woltz's mother, Fran Young, made these when we were kids. On reflection it probably wasn't reasonable for me to visit and eat 10 or 12 of these cookies. I might have been especially hungry after bringing John F. Kennedy back during a seance in Ellen's closet when we were about 10 years old.
