Russian, Greek, Mexican, Egyptian... Many countries claim it as their own. =) I've made this several times now and find that the easiest way to get the dough to cooperate is let the butter soften to room temperature before mixing and forming the balls. After forming the balls, refridgerate for 20-30 minutes before baking. That way the dough mixes easily, and there is no need to add extra moisture to hold together. Refrigerating the balls makes them keep their shape in the oven. The Egyptian way to do this cookie is to skip the nuts and stuff a small piece of Turkish Delight in the middle of each ball. I like it best that way and it is not really that hard to do.
