  1. Preheat oven to 320 F; Line a layer of baking sheet on a baking pan.
  2. In a mixing bowl, combine butter, powdered sugar, all-purpose flour and baking powder with a fork first. Use fingers to mix well and form dough. Cover and refrigerate for 20 minutes.
  3. Add walnut and peanut into the mixing bowl. Gently fold nuts into dough. Divide into 9 pieces and roll each into a ball. Press each dough to make it a little flat, about 2/3 inch thick.
  4. Transfer dough to baking pan. Leave about 2 inches between each piece. Apply beaten egg on dough surface. Bake until golden brown, about 15 minutes.
