Gradually blend in flour mixture.
Stir in walnuts.
Cover and chill dough several hours or overnight for easier handling.
Shape into 1-inch balls and arrange on greased cookie sheets.
Dip bottom of a glass into sugar and flatten balls to about 2 inches in diameter.
Bake in preheated 350°F oven 12 to 14 minutes or until edges are very lightly browned and cookies feel firm to touch in center.
