Luke's Diamonds of Love

1 jelly-roll pan
1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter - softened
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp mint extract
1 egg - separated
1 cup walnuts – chopped
1 cup pistachios - chopped

Preheat your oven to 300 degrees F. Pour a ½ cup of cooking oil into a jelly-roll pan and use a paper towel to generously coat the pan. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, butter, vanilla extract, mint extract and egg yolk. Mix on "Low” for 1 minute and then increase your mixer's speed to “Medium.” Beat the ingredients until well mixed. Next, pat dough evenly into the jelly-roll pan. In a cup, using a fork, beat the egg white slightly. Use a pastry brush to apply the egg yolk to the top of dough. Finally, sprinkle the roll with walnuts and pistachios. Bake for 70 minutes or until golden brown. Cool the roll on a wire rack for 10 minutes and then cut the roll into diagonally pieces. Enjoy this nutty treat with a glass of Brandy or chocolate liqueur.
