Cut in 10 tablespoons butter with pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add yogurt mixture; stir just until moistened. Stir in nuts. Turn out onto well floured surface; knead 3 or 4 times, just until dough holds together. Pat into a sqare about ½ inch thick. Cut into 2½-inch-squares (dough will be very soft.)
