Combine flour, cardamon and salt in a small bowl, set aside
Cream butter, add sugar and beat until light and fluffy. 
Beat in flour and add the nuts
The mixture will seem very very dry, keep beating and it will come together. 
Use the medium scoop, and scoop out a ball of dough. Roll in your hands to 
make it smooth. Then roll them in the powdered sugar/cardamon mixture. 
Place those on the parchment lined baking sheets. Flatten with a glass dipped in the powdered sugar 

Bake for 12 to 14 minutes.
Cool on the sheets for a few minutes, then move to wire racks to cool completely.
