I was blessed to meet Dottie Johnson Brown through a good friend (Mark) and knowing her and her wonderful dog Max, makes her family. I was thrilled when she shared this recipe with me, as it is over 100 years old. She makes it with using egg white and cinnamon (to make the sand), then covers with sprinkles, nuts, cherries, etc unless you choose to ice them. She also says they are so much better a day or two after baking...don't think they will last that long!

How to Make Dottie's Sand Tart Cookies


  1. Cream butter and sugar. Add egg. Mix it up. Add vanilla. Add flour a little at a time. Store in fridge for an hour or so. On floured board, roll out dough then cut out with cookie cutters. Lightly brush with beaten egg to give a nice color. Also the decorations will stick better when using candies, fruit, cinnamon and sugar. Once cooled you can also ice them.
