COMBINE flour and baking soda in medium bowl.

MICROWAVE morsels and butter in large, uncovered, microwave-safe bowl on MEDIUM-HIGH (70%) power for 1 minute; STIR. The morsels may retain some of their original shape. If necessary, microwave at additional 10 to 15-second intervals, stirring just until morsels are melted. Beat in sugar, eggs and vanilla extract. Gradually beat in flour mixture; stir in nuts. Cover; refrigerate for about 1 hour or until firm. Shape into two 14 x 1 1/2-inch logs; wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.

PREHEAT oven to 375° F.

UNWRAP logs; slice into 1/4-inch-thick slices. Place slices on ungreased baking sheets. Bake for 5 to 6 minutes or until edges are set. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely.

convenient and delicious

These cookies were not only delicious, but also convenient as I was able to make the logs put in the fridge for a day, then slice when guests stopped by. This recipe is a keeper for us.

Delicious cookies

I made these cookies for my husband, who loves anything butterscotch, he absoluely loved them and has requested I make another batch for him to bring to the guys at work. Very easy to make, and they are very good if I do say so myself.
