Foothill House Sweet Dreams

Saturday night I had the baking bug and was craving one of my all-time favorite cookies, Foothill House Sweet Dreams. They are a fabulous chocolate chip cookie that my dad made during my growing-up years and they are a cookie I hope my kids will remember me making too. 

Foothill House Sweet Dreams

1 cup butter
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ginger
1/2 tsp salt
12 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup chopped pecans (or walnuts) (I prefer pecans)

1 cup powdered sugar

Cream butter and sugar together until smooth; add egg and vanilla.   Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ginger and salt in separate bowl.   Add to creamed mixture.   Add chocolate chips and nuts.   Shape dough into balls and roll in powdered sugar.   Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes.
