Friday's recipe

And now, Friday's recipe...

I think these might be called snowballs in some circles. At least they look alike. We've always called ours Sandies, probably because they taste a bit like those store-bought cookies, Pecan Sandies (even though we usually use walnuts in ours).

1 cup margarine
1/3 cup sugar
2 teaspoons water
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup chopped nuts (walnuts work great)
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

Add ingredients in order listed, mixing well as you go.
Chill dough for at least 4 hours.
Shape dough into 3/4 inch balls.
Bake cookies on an ungreased cookie sheet for 20 minutes at 350 degrees.
Cool and roll in powdered sugar. These freeze well, but usually need the powdered sugar refreshed after thawing them.
Makes 36 cookies.
