It was a small cookie that you would cut rectangles out of the dough and they had a filling made of walnuts,egg whites and sugar, not sure if that is all or not. If anyone has this recipe or knows what I am talking about I would really appreciate it. Thanks in advance.

Swedish Sugar Cookies
This cookie recipe is easy; makes a lot; and the taste is melt-in-your-mouth wonderful!
1 Cup butter (do not substitute)
1 Cup butter-flavor Crisco
2 Cups sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3 Cups flour
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. baking powder
1 Cup flaked coconut (sweetened)
Let butter soften at room temperature for about an hour. Beat the butter and Crisco well. Beat in sugar and vanilla. Gently beat in the flour and dry ingredients. Stir in the coconut.

Form the dough into small balls about an inch apart on cookie sheet. Dip a fork into sugar and make criss-cross pattern on top (we dipped the bottom of a small glass in sugar then slightly flattened the balls). Bake the cookies at 300 o for 15 – 16 minutes. Cookies should not brown. Let cool on cookie sheet a few minutes then transport to cooling rack. Store in airtight container. Depending on the size of the balls, this will yield 50 to 60 cookies.

*This recipe was handed down to me from my husband’s 89-year-old aunt. Our daughter entered them into a bake-off at church and won first prize for their unique taste.

German Chocolate Cookies
I got this recipe out of the Pillsbury Cookbook last year for a cookie exchange that I'm in. I have to make 16 dozen cookies and needed a good, fast recipe. This one takes the cake - or cookie! I multiply the ingredients by 4 and this makes over 17 dozen. I just finished my last dozen and it only took me two hours! It is also very inexpensive!!!
1 box German Chocolate Cake Mix w/ Pudding
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup oil
1/2 cup (6 oz.) chocolate chips
2 eggs
1/2 cup raisins
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients together and drop by rounded spoon on baking sheets. Easy as that! (I leave out the raisins just because I don't like them.) HAVE FUN!!
