Yield: 36 servings
|4 tablespoons||Powdered sugar|
|1 teaspoon||Cold water|
|2 cups||Sifted all-purpose flour|
|1 cup||Finely chopped pecans or walnuts Powdered sugar|
Cream butter until fluffy, then add sugar, vanilla and cold water. Mix thoroughly and stir in flour, salt and nuts. Shape into a roll about 1½ inches in diameter. Wrap in waxed paper and chill thoroughly.
Cut in ¼ inch slices and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake in a 400 degree oven for about 6 to 8 minutes or until lightly browned.
Remove from baking sheet and roll in powdered sugar, if desired.
Makes 3 ½ to 4 dozen cookies. (These may be made into small balls also and baked for about 8 to 10 minutes. They should be rolled in sugar the same as the others.) Submitted By BARRY WEINSTEIN On 04-06-95
