Beer Nut Cookies

Beer Nut Cookies

from River Road Recipes IV...
Warm Welcomes


3 cups flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1-1/4 cups sugar
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 eggs
1-1/2 cups beer nuts


     Mix the flour, salt and baking soda together.  Beat the butter, sugar, brown sugar and vanilla in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy, scraping the bowl occasionally.  Add the eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.  Add the flour mixture gradually, beating until a soft dough forms.  Stir in the beer nuts.
     Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto a parchment-lined cookie sheet.  Bake at 325 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes or until light brown.  Cool on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes.  Remove to a wire rack to cool completely.  Store in an airtight container. 

NOTE:   Despite their name, beer nuts are not flavored with
       beer.  Originally called "redskins,' beer nuts are
       peanuts with the red husk left on, then glazed to
       taste salty and slightly sweet.  They are usually
       served in bars and taverns, or with beer, hence the
       moniker.  If your grocery store does not carry them,
       try a convenience store. 

YIELDS:   3 to 4 dozen cookies
