   Recipe by: The Washington Post 10/30/96 Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line a
   baking sheet with baking parchment.
   
   Cream the butter and shortening with the sugar and salt until light and
   well blended. Stir in the vanilla and egg. Stir in the flour and baking
   soda and mix well. Fold in the nuts and chocolate chunks.
   
   Form into generous tablespoons of batter and drop onto the lined baking
   sheet, pressing down slightly on the dough, about 2 inches apart. Bake 12
   to 15 minutes until lightly golden in color and browned at the edges.

       1/2    dozen).
   
   * NOTE: For a more tender, crisper, more buttery cookie, reduce flour to 1
   3/4 cups.
