  • 1 cup canola oil
  • 2 large eggs
  • 3/4 cup of brown sugar firmly packed (light or dark)
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 2-1/2 cups of sifted flour
  • ½ teaspoons of baking soda leveled
  • ½ teaspoons of baking powder leveled
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 1-1/4 cups of chopped walnuts
  1. Mix the first six ingredients in a large mixing bowl with your electric mixer until well combined.
  2. Then, sift together the next four ingredients of the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Slowly incorporate these sifted ingredients with the creamed ones until everything is added.
  3. Stir in the chopped walnuts last.
  4. Pour the batter into a well-greased baking pan about 15 X 10-inch.
  5. Bake at 350-degrees for about 10 to 12 minutes, depending on how your oven is regulated.
  6. These cookies become golden brown and puff up before deflating. Test with a toothpick to see if anything sticks, but they do harden up as they cool.
  7. Give them a few minutes in the pan to cool briefly before scoring.
  8. ENJOY!
