  9. Brush logs with egg wash.
  10. Bake in the middle of the oven until golden brown, 25 to 30 minutes.
  11. Cool logs on baking rack 10 minutes.
  12. Transfer logs onto cutting board and cut diagonally into 1/2 inch thick slices with a serated knife.
  13. Arrange slices cut side down on baking sheet.
  14. Bake 20 to 25 minutes, turning once.
