Cut in 2 tablespoons butter, using pastry blender or fork, until crumbly; put aside. In large bowl, mix 2 cups flour, the sugar , leaven and salt. Cut in 1/2 cup butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until mixture seems like fine crumbs. Stir in 1/2 cup nuts.

Sprinkle with topping. Dig 8 wedges, but don't separate. Bake 15 to 18 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet; carefully separate wedges. Serve warm.
