Norwegian Christmas Cookies

1 c. butter, room temperature
1 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. finely chopped walnuts
1 egg, separated
2 c. unsifted flour

Cream butter, sugar and egg yolk, mix in cinnamon. Add flour and beat just enough to blend. Press the dough out on a lightly greased medium baking sheet until  3/8 inch thick.Beat egg white lightly, brush evenly over dough. Scatter nuts on top. Again press dough slightly so that the nuts aren't too loose. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes OR until lightly brown. Mark into 1 to 1 1/2 inch squares but do not separate. Let cool 10 to 20 minutes before cutting.
