In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolks and corn syrup. Gradually beat in flour. Refrigerate, covered, 30 minutes or until firm enough to roll.

Preheat oven to 375. Shape dough into 1 inch balls; place 2 inches apart on parchment paper-lined baking sheets. In a small bowl, whisk egg whites; brush over tops.
