Family Recipe Friday: Pecan Shorts
1 cup flour
1/2 cup butter (this has to be REAL butter)
3 and 3/4 Tablespoons Powdered Sugar
1/2 teaspoon cold water
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans
Cream butter, sift and add flour and sugar. Mix well. Add water and vanilla, lastly the nut meats. Mold the cookies in your hand to a size you like. Bake about 1/2 hour at 325 degrees or until they are getting pink.
Put some powdered sugar in a baggie. Put the warm cookies (NOT straight from the oven or the powdered sugar will melt) a few at a time, in the baggie and shake until covered with powdered sugar.
