Sandies (a.k.a. Russian Tea Cakes)


1 1/2 cups butter
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon water
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
3 cups sifted all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans
1/3 cup confectioners' sugar


In a medium bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in the water and vanilla. Stir in the flour and pecans until well blended.

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Shape dough into walnut sized balls. Place 2 inches apart onto unprepared cookie sheets.

Bake for 18 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, until golden. Roll in confectioners' sugar while still warm.
