Combine all the dough ingredients and refrigerate to chill overnight in a covered bowl.
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Roll the dough very thin (about ⅛ inch) and cut into diamond shapes. You may cut with cookie cutters if desired but I roll the Sand Tart dough out and cut it with a knife in long lines and then come back across with a diagonal cut.
Transfer the cookies to a prepared cookie sheet - I use parchment paper.
Brush the tops with egg whites.
Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
Place half an almond or pecan on each cookie and brush again with eggs whites.
Sprinkle with a little more cinnamon sugar.
Bake at 350F for 10 - 12 minutes.
As the cookies cool they harder further.
Tips For Making Sand Tarts
