Beat margarine, peanut butter, sugar and
egg in a small bowl until well mixed. Transfer mixture to a large bowl
and stir in sifted dry ingredients and nuts. Roll 2 level teaspoons of
mixture into a ball with lightly floured hands. Flatten slightly with
fork. Place onto greased oven tray. Repeat with remaining mixture,
allowing about 1.5 inches between cookies. Bake in moderately hot oven
for about 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Cool on wire rack.
