  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar. Beat in the egg yolk and vanilla until the mixture is smooth. Combine the flour and cinnamon, stir into the creamed mixture. Press the mixture evenly into the prepared pan until it is about 1/4 inch thick. Brush the top with egg white and sprinkle with chopped pecans. Lightly press the pecans down into the dough.
  3. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden brown at the edges. When cool, dust with confectioners' sugar and cut into squares.

Sorry but I did not care for these bars, they are much too sandy dry for my taste, even though they were easy to make. You also forgot to list the vanilla in your ingredients.

THESE ARE THE MOST WONDERFUL CINNAMON-PECAN COOKIES- SWEET, CRISP, AND "CINNAMONY", VERY EASY, FAST, AND SCRUMPTUOUS!

Dry . . . but . . . does taste good. (Would make a good pie crust.)

I decided to give this one a shot in spite of the quasi negative reviews... The bars did not hold together well and were very dry. They also were not sweet at all. Maybe another egg and anothe...

these were awful! kind of like shortbread, but very crumbly and not at all crunchy.

Nice flavor. Not too sweet and very flaky.

I did not care for thie recipe...dry - like sawdust with pecans and cinnamon; the egg yolk causes the top to come off when cut.

These cookie bars are not as good as they sounded. I wonder what some baking soda would do.
