No sand required! :)
No worries no real sand is required, 'sand' refers to the sandy colour and crumbly texture of these crisp Dutch cookies. I wanted to eat cookies so bad yesterday but it was raining so I took a look at what we had lying around in the cabinets and decided to make these easy to bake cookies. Because I didn't have the usual amount of each ingredients I could only make 10... 10 delicious cookies!

optional: you could add precut nuts, dried fruit or small pieces of chocolate to the dough.

  • Step 1

    Sieve the flour into a large bowl and add sugar and a pinch of salt.

    With a spoon mix it and then add the egg. Stirr with spoon.

    Cut the butter into small pieces and add it to the dry mix.

    Knead the ingredients with cool hands together until it forms a dough ball (do this quickly)

    Optional: you can also use a mixer with a dough hook attachment.

    Add a few drops of milk if the mixture is too crumbly.

    But the dough ball in a bowl and cover it with plastic. Leave in the fridge for one hour.

  • Step 2

    Preheat the oven to 175C.

    Take your dough out of the fridge and roll the dough out on a floured surface, it should be around 0.4" thick (1cm)

    using a cookie cutter, cut your cutties (and decorate with nuts, sugar or icing if desired)

    Place the cookies on a greased cookie sheet, brush with egg white and bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to cool on a wire cooling rack.

Just wanted to say thanks - I've just turned out my third batch of these for my family to enjoy over the holidays, and they love them! I can recommend adding a little dessicated coconut to them at the mixing stage, but I don't recommend using half butter and half margarine like I did -- it makes a very wet mixture and they just don't taste the same. So, the hell with it - use real unsalted butter and damn the calories! I suspect I'll be making many more of these in years to come.

It doesn't say you have to enter with a vegan recipe it says that you may enter with ANY recipe... so... you should read.

You entered these in the vegan calander contest, but they're not vegan.
They have butter and eggs, both animal products.
