Total Time

Prep: 15 min. Bake: 20 min. + cooling

These crisp treats lend a different shape to a cookie tray. And they're easy to prepare— just press into a pan, bake and break. My family enjoys them during the holidays and all year long.


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup miniature semisweet chocolate chips
  • 1 cup finely chopped walnuts, divided


  1. In a bowl, cream butter, shortening and sugar. Beat in vanilla. Combine flour and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Stir in chocolate chips and 3/4 cup walnuts. Spread into a greased 15x10x1-in. baking pan. Sprinkle with remaining nuts; press down gently. Bake at 375° for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool completely. Break into pieces.
