Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Prepare two large baking sheets by lining with parchment paper, greasing or spraying with cooking spray.
Stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt in a medium bowl. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the butter, sugar and egg yolk. Beat at medium speed with an electric mixer until fluffy and well blended.
On low speed, beat in the flour mixture until well blended. Let stand for 5 to 10 minutes or until dough firms up slightly.
Shape portions of the dough into approximate 1-inch balls. Dip the tops of the balls into the chopped nuts, if using.
