Original recipe yields 2 dozen
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13 inch baking pan.
- 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.
- 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.

"I am absolutely shocked by the negative reviews. Obviously, those folks didn't prepare them correctly. They are flaky, crunchy - very similar to shortbread except cinnamon-y. I get RAVES anytime I ..." See moremake these. So, don't let the negative reviews keep you from trying these!! These are not traditional cookies...they are supposed to be flaky, crunchy, NOT leavened ( so for heaven's sake don't add baking soda) Make sure they are pressed out evenly. And don't take them out too soon or they won't be crispy. They are not supposed to be overly sweet either..sort of like Mexican Wedding Cookies. The sweetness comes from he powdered sugar sprinkled on top. So, if you want a super sweet, sugary cookie...this is NOT it! But, if you want to try something different and you love cinnamon and pecans...then give it a try! :-)"
