Sand Tarts, Mexican Wedding Cookies, or Snowballs whatever you want to call them is okay as long as you make them sometime soon. Growing up we called them sand tarts and sometimes made them in crescent shapes, but when I was trying to find a recipe for them I kept finding them as Mexican Wedding Cookies. That's fine they are still the cookies I remember from my childhood. I made these last week for our open house partly because I needed another cookie and something easy and partly because they are my daddy's favorite cookie. So when you need a little something sweet give these cookies a try. They are easy and not too sweet.
