  2. In medium bowl,combine remaining 1 cup flour, sugar, and walnut mixture and stir until blended.
  3. With fingertips, blend butter into walnut mixture until well combined and crumbly.  With hand, press dough onto bottom of 9 inch square baking pan.
  4. Bake until light golden, 25to 30  minutes.  While still warm,cut into 4 strips, then cut each strip crosswise into6 pieces. Cool completely in pan on wire rack.
