My good friend, who is from Northern Europe, shared this recipe with me. The outside of these light cookies are crusted with chopped pecans.


  1. Cream the butter, sugar, and egg yolk together until well combined.
  2. Gradually stir in the flour.
  3. Beat the egg white until frothy.
  4. Roll the dough into 1in. balls. Dip into the egg white, the roll in the chopped pecans.
  5. Place 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets; flatten slightly.
  6. Bake at 375*F (190*C) for 9-12 minutes or until the edges are lightly browned. Remove to wire racks to cool.
