Sugar diamonds

Sugar Diamonds
1 cup butter (no substitutes), softened
1 cup sugar
1 egg, separated
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Pinch of salt
1/2 cup chopped pecans, toasted
In a mixing bowl, cream together butter and sugar. Add egg yolk and vanilla; mix well. Combine flour, cinnamon and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture. Spoon into a greased 15 by 10 by 1 inch baking pan. Cover dough with plastic wrap and press evenly into pan; remove wrap. In a small mixing bowl, beat egg white until foamy; brush over the dough. Sprinkle with pecans. Bake at 300 degrees for 30 minutes, or until light golden brown. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Cut into diamond shapes while warm.
Makes about 6 dozen.

  1. Cute name!!  Yum.  Pecans grow in area but crop wiped out this last year.  Fungus we think.  Luv pecan sandies or mexican wedding cookies rolled in powder sugar.
