Finska Pinnar (finnish Fingers)
Butter or margarine
Beat butter until creamy, then beat in sugar and egg yolk. Add vanilla.
Gradually work in flour to form dough. Chill. Roll dough out into long ropes about 1/2 inch in diameter. Brush ropes with lightly beaten egg white, then cut into 2 1/2-inch lengths. Dip each in pearl sugar to coat.
Place on greased baking sheets and bake at 350F 15 to 20 minutes.
