ROSE VALLEY — Ryan Berley does quite a bit of research as curator of Rose Valley Museum at Thunderbird Lodge.
He didn’t have to look far, however, to find a recipe for sand tarts.
The museum provided the dough, ovens and antique cookie cutters and nearly two dozen guests selected their favorite designs at Sand Tarts and Schnitte. Berley, co-owner of The Franklin Fountain and Shane Confectionery, presented a slide show and talk as the buttery shapes baked into crispy treats.
