  2. In a large bowl, cream the butter with a mixer.
  3. Add the salt, vanilla, and sugar and beat well.
  4. On low speed, gradually add the flour, scraping the bowl with a rubber spatula and beating until the mixture holds together.
  5. Add the nuts and chocolate chips and mix well.
  6. Spread the dough (it will be stiff) into an unbuttered 10 1/2 x 15 1/2 x 1 inch jelly roll pan.
  7. With floured fingertips, press the dough firmly to make an even layer- it will be thin.
  8. Bake for 25 minutes, reversing the pan front to back once to insure even baking.
  9. The cake will be golden brown.
  10. Let cool in the pan for only a minute or so.
  11. With a small sharp knife, cut into bars.
  12. Let stand in the pan until cool.
  13. Transfer the cookies to paper towels to dry the bottoms.
