Chess Noels

I believe I've found an interesting recipe here. This one may very well be vintage from someone's family recipe book handed down through generations.
I tried to research this and only found one other recipe by the same name and it was nothing like this one.
Apparently this cookie was made and served only during Christmas. I could see it being served any time of the year.

Chess Noels:

1/4 C butter
1 1/2 C sifted flour
3 TBS  granulated sugar
1 1/4 C brown sugar
3 eggs yolks, beaten ( save the whites)
1/2 C chopped pecans
1/2 tsp vanilla
3 egg whites ( the ones you saved) , stiffly beaten
1 C powdered sugar

Cream butter and granulated sugar
Gradually add flour
Mix well
Press evenly into a 9"X13" pan
Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes

Mix together:
brown sugar
egg yolks
Fold in stiffly beaten egg whites
Spread evenly over baked layer
Bake an additional 25 minutes

Dust with powdered sugar
Cool completely
Cut into squares

Peace in the Kitchen!
