READY IN: 1hr 5mins
YIELD: 5 dozen




  • Preheat oven to 350*F.
  • In a medium-sized mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, pecan meal, sugar, baking powder, salt and cinnamon.
  • Add the butter and mix until evenly crumbly. Beat in the egg, egg yolk and water. Add the chips and stir just until they're evenly distributed.
  • Lightly flour a clean work surface. Divide the dough into three portions. Working with one piece at a time, roll the dough into a log about 1 1/4 inches in diameter. Repeat with the remaining dough. Place the logs on a lightly greased or parchment-lined baking sheet and flatten slightly, leaving 2 inches between them.
  • Lightly beat the egg white with 2 teaspoons of water. Brush this glaze over the tops of the logs.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, until they're lightly browned. Remove from the oven, and allow them to cool for 5 minutes. Slice them into 3/4-inch thick slices on the diagonal, place them cut-side down on the baking sheet, and return them back to the oven to bake for 10-15 more minutes, until they're crisp and lightly browned.
  • Allow to cool, then dip an end in melted chocolate, if desired.
  • Yield: about 5 dozen.
