Delicious Pecan Sandies Cookies Recipe

My husband loves to eat nuts...all kinds of nuts...I on the other hand am allergic to all nuts except for almonds, pecans and regular peanuts. When I make Pecan Sandies, this is the recipe I use...my hubby just loves these cookies. They come out nice and chewie so don't bake them longer than the recommended time.

Pecan Sandies Recipe

(makes 36)

1 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans
1/4 cup powdered sugar

Beat butter for 30 seconds; add granulated sugar and beat till fluffy. Add vanilla and 2 tsp. water; beat well. Stir in flour and pecans. Shape into 1" balls. Place on a ungreased cookie sheet (or Tupperware (tm) Silicone Wonder Baking Mat). Bake in a 325 degree oven for about 20 minutes. Cool completely. Gently shake a few cookies at a time in a bag with powdered sugar. Store in an air tight container.
