This recipe comes from my trusty Better Homes and Gardens Cookbook.
1 cup butter, room temperature
1/3 cup sugar
2 tsp water
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup chopped pecans
*The dough needs to be refrigerated for 3 hrs.
Cream butter and sugar; add water and vanilla; mix well. Blend in flour then stir in nuts; chill 3 hrs.
Preheat oven to 325-F. Shape into 1" balls (very small). Bake on ungreased cookie sheet about 20 minutes. Remove from pan; cool slightly; roll in powdered sugar.
