CHRISTMAS COOKIES WEEK 6

SAND TARTS

Mercy all those cookies! LOL last night around 8:00 I go into the kitchen & start pulling out  my favorite recipes, hubby is trying to get ready for work & ask  who you taking those to/ I reply my blog! LOL

this recipe is one of my favorites, the card is well used as it’s typed out  on a typewriter from my mother-n-law  way back in the 70’s yep I’ve had it that long along with many others, cookie01

I’d like to make a special scrapbook of all her recipes she’s given me  along with my 98 year old Aunt etc  ok back to the recipe: cream 1 c.butter with 4 Tabs' powdered sugar adding  3c.flour gradually

cookie02

cookie dough will be very course & dry like, don’t get scared  you can do this lol  cookie03

after the 3rd c. of flour it’s best to start working the dough with a fork or your hands “if clean” LOL then add pecans cookie04

roll out small log shapes & shape into 1/2 moons

cookie05

bake @ 350 for about 15 min, depending on how thick you make them will determine the length of time to bake, watch them carefully as they look the same coming out as they do going in

while cookies are still hot from the oven, roll in powdered sugar, this recipe does not call for sugar, the sweetness comes from the powdered sugar

at this point I’m ready for  more pictures & hubby is reaching…oh no you don’t I haven’t taken  a picture  for the blog yet geeze!, week 6 he should know this by now LOL

Don't be one bit surprised if a perfect stranger shows up on your doorstep with an outstretched hand (or wing, in this case) and begs for those cookies! Helen!!! What are you doing to me???

XO,

These sound yummy. I'm there with you baking up delicious treats just to post about them on the blog. My family is starting to get the hang of not touching anything until I have photographed it. My husband is good about asking me before he eats anything, just in case. :)

I have never heard this cookie called sand them. They are dangerous for me to have around. ;)

These look so yummy! My husband is also "getting the hang of" asking if it's safe to eat the goodies before digging in!
