Sand Tarts
What a wonderful surprise to find this particular recipe! I used to make these as a teenager. In fact, I made these for the first date I had with my now husband of 52-1/2 years! Our 5 children have given us 20 grandchildren and now there are 5 great grandchildren as well. It's always a challenge to have something affordable for so many people for Christmas! This year all will be receiving a few of these Sand Tarts + the recipe and their 'history' in our family. CHANGES I MADE: pecans instead of walnuts (we had a big old pecan tree in the backyard of my childhood home); no chilling; balls a tiny bit larger, then rolled into small logs and curved into crescent shape; no steaming in brown bag. Thank you, Robin! Once more you have made my day!

Oatmeal Sugar Cookies
What a lovely cookie! Thank you, Robin. I looked for an oatmeal cookie that didn't call for brown sugar, because I was out of it - I was out of raisins, too, ;o(. I did substitute 1/3 cup butter. Next time I may increase the cinnamon to 1 teaspoon, just because we love cinnamon. But the cookie turned out nice and crisp - great texture, great taste. I have some of them in the freezer now. This will be a standard in our house.
