Pecan Sandies

I made my Grandmother’s Pecan Sandies for a holiday cookie exchange at work.  She’s been making these for over 50 years and they are a really special treat for me.  (And quite easy to make!)

Pecan Sandies by Barbara Ruble

1 C butter, softened
1/3 confectioners’ sugar
2 t vanilla
1 T water
2 C flour
1 C chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 300. Cream butter, sugar, vanilla and water. Slowly add flour until mixed well. Mix in nuts thoroughly, form into 1″ balls and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes until delicately brown. Cool 5 minutes on pan, then roll in confectioners sugar while still hot. Cool on cookie rack completely. Enjoy!

What is your favorite holiday cookie?
