Method

Pre-heat oven to 180°c. Line a flat baking tray with greaseproof paper. 

Sift the flour and salt together. In a separate bowl, cream together the butter and sugar, then add in the egg and mix well. Blend in the flour and salt mixture, along with the chocolate chips and chopped nuts. 

Shape the dough into 1 inch balls and spread them evenly onto the baking sheet. 

Bake the cookies for around 15-20 minutes. 

Once baked, remove from oven and let them cool. Once cool, roll the cookies in powdered/icing sugar.
