Yule cookie – Sand Tarts

Sand Tarts

1 lb cane sugar
¾ lb butter
3 eggs
1 lb flour

Cream butter; add sugar, and eggs one at a time
Beating to mix
Add flour and mix well
Place in refrigerator until cold (covered) or overnight if necessary
Take out a handful and roll to 1/8 inch thin
Cut into shapes
Place on lightly greased or foiled cookie sheet

Topping:

Beat one whole egg slightly (sometimes 2 are needed)
Make a mixture of sugar and cinnamon (or you could use the leftover from the Ginger Krinkles)
Brush each cookie with egg
Sprinkle on the sugar mix
Top with finely chopped nuts (walnuts)
Bake at 375 degrees until done 8-10 minutes
Remove from sheet to cool

One of my family’s recipe says 350 other 375 degree. Probably because it predates calibrated ovens. These are really good
