"I have long believed that good food, good eating is all about risk. Whether we're talking about unpasteurized Stilton, raw oysters or working for organized crime 'associates,' food, for me, has always been an adventure."--Anthony Bourdain

Directions:
Cream together butter and sugar, then mix in egg yolks, then flour. Chill thoroughly. Shape gobs of dough into logs about 2” long and ¾” thick. You may wish to do this before chilling dough as cookies will spread less during baking.

Dip tops of logs in beaten egg white, then in sugared nuts. Place nut side up on ungreased baking sheet, or use parchment paper liners. Bake at 350º for 10-12 minutes, until edges are lightly browned.

Personal Notes:
This recipe was given to me by a woman in a community college class I took years ago. She wasn’t someone I noticed at first, but from her I learned that every person has a fascinating story if we only take time to listen. These cookies are simple and fun to make, and so delicious it’s hard to stop eating them.
