1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1 large egg
3 tablespoons 2% milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup ground walnuts
1 teaspoon baking powder
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 5-7 minutes. Beat in egg, milk and vanilla. In another bowl, whisk flour, walnuts and baking powder; gradually beat into creamed mixture.
Divide dough in half. Shape each into a disk; wrap in plastic. Refrigerate 1 hour or until firm enough to roll.
Preheat oven to 375°. On a lightly floured surface, roll each portion of dough to 1/4-in. thickness. Cut with a floured 2-in. round cookie cutter. Place 1 in. apart on ungreased baking sheets.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until edges are light brown. Remove from pans to wire racks to cool.
