Written by Josh P

Sand Tarts are a simple American recipe for cookies which include pecan nuts. These are, with the exception for those with nut allergies, divine morsels. Best of all, they are ideal for dunking in a mug of coffee for that between meal snack. I normally make the dough the night before to allow it to relax in the fridge.  These are superb for snack, picnics, lunch boxes and anytime you have a break.  Adding cinnamon gives the cookies a lovely little kick that is big enough to make a hot but not too much. All in all a lovely little treat to have in the larder.
