Vanilla Icebox Cookies

2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2/3 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 egg
2 teaspoons vanilla (or you can substitute lemon or orange peel for a slightly fruity flavor)
1 cup chopped walnuts

Combine dry ingredients and set aside. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg and vanilla, beat until fluffy. Mix in dry ingredients. Add nuts and stir until combined. Shape dough into a 1-inch roll and chill. Once dough is chilled, cut into slices and bake at 375 degrees for 8 to 10 minutes, or until slightly golden around the edges.
