Accordion Cookies Recipe

1 serving


15 minutes


26 minutes

  • 2 (1-yard) sheets heavy-duty foil
  • ¾ cup butter, softened
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup Pillsbury BEST® All Purpose or Unbleached Flour
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ cup chopped walnuts, if desired
  1. Heat oven to 325°F. Fold 1 sheet of foil in half lengthwise. Fold the double-thickness foil crosswise into 1-inch pleats to make an "accordion-pleated" pan. Place on ungreased cookie sheet. Repeat with second sheet of foil.
  2. In large bowl, combine butter and sugar; beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and eggs; beat well. Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup; level off. Add flour and salt; mix well. Stir in walnuts. Drop rounded teaspoon of dough into each fold of foil. (Dough spreads during baking to form 4 1/2 to 5-inch long cookies.)
  3. Bake at 325°F. for 18 to 26 minutes or until golden brown. Remove cookies from foil; cool completely. Turn foil over for second baking.
