Sand Lake Cookies

My friend Margit brought these to me at an impromptu Halloween party in 1999 at my house. I thought they looked “interesting,” but oh when I tasted them… They were great! Margit’s family used to go to Sand Lake in Minnesota every summer and would bring these cookies, thus the name. They are almost like toffee, so delicious.
