  3. Combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg in a small mixing bowl; set aside.
  4. Using an electric mixer, beat butter or margarine with sugar in a medium mixing bowl until light and fluffy.
  5. Add egg; mix well.
  6. Break up cranberry sauce with a fork and add to the butter mixture.
  7. Add nuts.
  8. Add dry ingredients to the cranberry mixture, mixing just until the dry ingredients are moist.
