Sandbakkelse (Sand Tarts)

3 reviews

Translated from Norwegian, the name of these cookies is "'sand tarts." They're most attractive if baked in authentic sandbakkelse molds, which can be purchased online or in a Scandinavian import shop. Most any decorative cookie mold will do, though, and the interesting shapes will make these tarts the focus of your cookie tray. —Karen Hoylo, Duluth, Minnesota
