1/4 cup sifted powdered sugar
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups chopped pecans
Additional powdered sugar
How to Make It
Cream butter; gradually add 1/4 cup sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add water and vanilla; beat well. Gradually stir in flour. Fold in pecans. Chill at least 1 hour.
