Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl and set aside. Put 2 whole eggs and 1 yoke in a bowl. Put egg white aside. Add butter, vanilla, and sugar to eggs. Mix until smooth. Add dry ingredients. Mix until moist. Divide dough in half. Mold each half into a 3 x 15 log. place on parchment lined cookie sheet. Brush with beaten egg white. Sprinkle with course sugar. Bake at 350 for 25 min. Cool for 15 min. Carefully remove each log to cutting surface and slice diagonally along log. Set each piece upright on cookie sheet and bake at 275 for 45 min. If desired , melt chocolate chips (white or milk) and drizzle.
You can always change up the nuts, fruit and kinds of chocolate. Make them with what you like. I have used chocolate covered cherries, cranberries and pistachios, chocolate covered pomegranate, and others.
