Teddy Bear Cut-Out Cookies

1 cup butter
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
2 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup finely chopped walnuts

Cream butter with sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg. Stir flour, salt and baking powder together. Stir into butter mixture gradually. Add vanilla and stir in walnuts. Chill about an hour. Roll out 1/8 inch thick on floured board. Cut into shapes. Place on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 400 degrees about 8 minutes, just until edges start to brown. Decorate as desired. Yield 6 to 7 dozen 3-inch teddy bears.

Tester's note: This cookie stays flat while baking, and is a good choice for those plastic cutters with the intricate features. The dough is best when chilled, but not cold. I microwaved small chunks of the dough for 10 seconds on medium, when it was too hard to work with.
