Cinnamon Shortbread thingys

OK these are in the oven right now and mmmmmmmmmmmmm they look and smell so fine! Thought I would share.

1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 3/4 cup flour
1 heaping tbsp cinnamon
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 cup chopped nuts (optional, I didn't use any)

Put butter in the microwave for a few seconds to soften it, then add the brown sugar. Separate the egg and put the yolk in with the butter/sugar. Leave the white in a high sided bowl for a few minutes. Cream butter, sugar and egg together, then add the flour and cinnamon. Work this with your hands until it is well blended and pat it onto a small cookie sheet. (um...15 x 9 or so?) Whip the egg white to almost hard peaks, and stir in the 1/2 cup of brown sugar. Smear this all over the batter in the pan and sprinkle with nuts if you're using them.

Bake at 350 for aobut 1/2 hour. Cut into bars while hot and let bars cool on racks.

Ok a little warning to you, with a cup of tea these babies are all too easy to overindulge in. They ROCK!

They sound delicious, but I think they deserve a nicer name . I'll make them very soon. Thanks.
