  yolk, almond extract and vanilla in a small bowl until frothy; add to
  flour mixture. Beat unti thoroughly combined and mixture is
  moistened. (Take a little bit of the cookie mixture between your
  fingertips and pinch; if the dough holds together you have beaten it
  enough). Add almonds and hazelnuts. WIth your hands, work nuts into
  dough until mixture begins to hold together. Turn out onto a piece of
  wax paper. Divide mixture in half. Shape each half into a log, 2
  inches in diameter and about 12 inches long. Place logs on prepared
  cookie sheets. Beat egg white in a small cup until foamy; brush over
  logs. Bake in preheated 375 degree oven for 30 minutes or until
  golden. Remove logs with paper to wire racks. Cool 1 hour. Preheat
  oven to 350 degrees. Cut logs into 1/2 diagonal slices with a
  serrated knife using a sawing motion. Place cookies on large
  ungreased cookie sheets. Bake in preheated moderate oven (350
  degrees) for 10 minutes or until centers are dry, turning once. Cool
