  5. 1 cup (250 mL) firmly packed light brown sugar
  6. 1/4 cup (60 mL) granulated sugar

1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Combine flour, baking soda and salt in medium bowl; set aside.

2. Mix 1 cup (250 mL) Becel® Buttery Taste margarine with sugars in large bowl. Mix in eggs and vanilla until blended. Gradually add in flour mixture; mix just until blended. Finely chop 1/3 cup walnuts and stir in. Drop by tablespoonfuls on ungreased baking sheets, 2-in. (5 cm) apart.
