4 tablespoons butter

1 teaspoon maple flavoring

3 to 4 tablespoons milk

1. Preheat oven to 350F.

2. Combine butter, sugars, eggs, flavoring and salt and beat until just combined. Add flours, 1 cup at a time. If dough is sticky to the touch, add more self-rising flour in 1/4 cup increments until smooth.  Stir in walnuts.
