Sand Tarts

1 cup butter
5T powder sugar
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts
1T water, if needed

Cream butter and sugar, work in flour, vanilla and chopped nuts. If mixture is not sticking together, add in water.

Pinch off small pieces of dough and shape into crescents about the size of the little finger. Bake for about 30 mins in a 350* oven. Roll in powder sugar while still warm. Re-roll in powder sugar when you put them on a cookie tray.

Sandies

Preheat oven to 300*

Combine and mix well
3/4 c soft butter
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 Tablespoon water
1/3 cup sugar
2 cups of flour (the original recipe calls for cake flour but we always used regular flour)
1 c toasted pecans (coarsely chopped)
1 cup chocolate chips (I used mini chocolate chips the last ones I made)

Form in to 1in balls. Bake about an hour. Roll in powder sugar.

TSugar -

Do these cookies spread when baking? And how thick do you roll them?

The butter cookies will puff up a little, but don't really spread.

The sand tarts and sandies don't really spread either, so I put them pretty close together on the sheet.

THANK YOU!! That is so sweet! Happy New Year to you, too! I hope this year will be wonderful and full of exciting new opportunities for everyone!! I really want 2011 to be a great year!

Gerle, I think it went very well! I think we got some great new recipes, as well as some ideas on what to do with them! I know I'll be experimenting with them for quite a while, and I'm guessing many will end up in my personal favorites!

Thank you to everyone who participated, it was a lot of fun! thumbs_up.gif
