As a child, we always made a 4 hour drive to spend the Christmas week at Grand Mother Nicky's house. She always had wonderful things baked for us kids and the thing I looked forward to sinking my teeth into the most was her sand tarts. They were so thin and delicious that I know I could have eaten the whole huge cookie tin all by myself. After Nicky passed away in 1976, I looked through some of the cook books that my mother had been given from her, but no sand tart recipe! Years later I was reminiscing with a cousin and she happened to have that particular recipe. So here it is. ENJOY!
A really tasty, light cookie! With a delicate lemon flavor these are both refreshing and addictive.
