I am Pennsylvania Dutch and this is same Recipe my Family had used for Generations, which was lost in a recent move. Thanks for sharing!!
This is my maternal grandmother's Sand Tart recipe and Christmas just isn't the same without these cookies. This was a Thanksgiving weekend project involving the whole family when I was growing up in the 1940's and 50's t. We roll out these cookies as thin as possible, cut them into Christmas shapes, sprinkle with cinnamon sugar and then press a generous pinch of finely chopped black walnuts into the center of each cookie. The cookies are then sealed in tin cans until Christmas to allow the black walnut flavor to permeate them. Black walnuts can be hard to find but well worth the effort. Yummm!!!
