Cinnamon Nut Shortbread Cookies

These cookies are a lovely little shortbread cookie topped with cinnamon laced nuts. They are really tasty and because they are a bar cookie they are also a great time saver. You just make a batch of dough and press it into a small jelly roll pan. Top with egg white and a cinnamon nut mixture and bake. As soon as they come out of the oven cut them into little strips. I got nearly 100 out of one batch. It depends on the size you cut them. If you are looking for a simple, yet wonderful cookie, you might want to try these.
