In this video, Betty demonstrates how to make Pecan Sandies. These are very easy to make and are delicious, either with or without the pecans. You can make this into a project that a child can help with. My grandson Carter helped with the shaping of these cookies.
Ingredients
  Butter 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Sugar 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Vanilla extract 2 Teaspoon
  Water 2 Teaspoon
  Flour 2 Cup (32 tbs) (either all-purpose or self-rising flour)

Directions

GETTING READY
1. In a large mixing bowl, add butter and sugar. Using an electric mixer beat until fluffy and airy.
2. Stir in vanilla and water. Mix well.
3. Add flour and mix to combine. Stir in chopped pecans, cover the bowl with plastic wrap and pop it in the refrigerator to chill for 4 hours. You can also make plain Sandies.
4. Line a baking pan with parchment paper.

MAKING
