      Combine butter, add sugar gradually; beat in egg yolks and vanilla.
   Blend in flour and salt; chill.  Shape level teaspoonfuls of dough into
   rounds; dip in egg white, then roll in the pecans. Put on greased cookie
   sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 5 minutes. Remove from oven; make a
   depression in center of each cookie.  Return to oven; bake about 10 minutes
   longer.  Cool and fill centers with tinted butter frosting. Makes 6 dozen.
      To make tinted frosting, combine butter, sugar, cream and vanilla. Mix
   well.  Divide mixture in half.  Color one portion with red food coloring;
   the other with green food coloring.
