I can't stop baking!! It's Martha's fault. She posted making her powdered sugar cookies, and having an accident with the sugar and ending up with a powered sugar black blouse. HaHa. After a chuckle, I decided I would make "Sandies" and see if it would snow in my kitchen.
Betsy ask for the recipe so here it is!
1 cup butter
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 teaspoons water
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups sifted all purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans
(I used walnuts since I have a large supply)
Cream butter and sugar; add 2 tsp. water and 2 tsp vanilla; mix well. Blend in flour and nuts. Chill 4 hours. Shape into balls with fingers. Bake on ungreased or parchment lined cookie sheet at 325 degrees for about 20 minutes. Remove from pan; cool slightly; roll in powered sugar. (I use a large zip top plastic bag to coat mine.) Luckily it didn't break like Martha's and my red top is till red!! HaHa.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies.
When I was shaking my bag, one of the cookies broke... Oh dang, I guess I've got to eat that one!!! Mmmmm. Yeah, it was good. Melts in your mouth.
Today I'm visiting Elizabeth, so I'll take her some "snow balls"
What will come out of the kitchen tomorrow...stay tuned in..same time, same station. Sending love and good smells from my kitchen to yours!!
