It's a simple, almost shortbread like recipe, with an egg yolk added. I got it back in the 70's, from an old NYT book, though I don't recall which one. Since this is baked at the low temp for longer, compared to most, I usually fill the sheets up while the oven is heating, and put them in before it gets that hot, since I'm usually doing it in the convection, and bake it for 25 min., while the heat is rising (that huge oven takes a long time to get up to 325º, which I bake the rest at), and it works out well. The directions are the original recipe, for a regular oven.

Pine Nut Cookies

1/4 lb Butter; chilled
1/2 cup Sugar
1 cup flour
1/2 cup Sugar
1/8 tsp Salt
1 egg yolk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup pine nuts; toasted

A. Place flour, sugar and salti n FP and process briefly; Cut up butter and add, along with vanilla and egg yolk, and process untill a ball of dough is formed. Work in nuts by hand.

B. Preheat oven to 300º. Roll dough into 3/4 in. balls and place 1 1/2 in. apart on parchment paper, and bake 20-25 min., or until just beginning to brown around the edges.
