1. In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer on medium speed, beat butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until creamy. Beat in egg, vanilla, baking soda, and salt until well blended.
2. Add flour to butter-sugar mixture and beat until blended. Stir in the chopped nuts. Cover and remgerate dough at least 1 hour, until chilled.
