In a large mixing bowl cream the butter and sugars together until smooth. Beat in the egg and peanut butter and continue to beat until combined.
In a separate bowl, sift the flour, salt and baking soda together. Add the peanut butter mixture and stir just until combined. Stir in chopped nuts.
Drop round teaspoonfuls of the mixture onto a baking sheet and depress the balls lightly with the prongs of a fork. Bake for 8-10 minutes until just cooked through.
Allow to cool 5 minutes on the baking sheet then transfer to a cooking rack to cool completely.
