Meme’s Sand Tarts

These were always on the Christmas cookie tray.  They are Tia Kathy’s favorites.

2 sticks butter

6 T. powdered sugar  (1/4 c. + 2 T.)

1 ¼ c. chopped pecans

1 T. water

1 ½ t. vanilla

1 ½ c. sifted flour

Cream sugar, butter, water and vanilla.  Add flour, then pecans.

Form into crescent shape.  Bake on ungreased cookie sheet at 350 degrees in middle top of oven.  Bake for approximately 15 minutes, or until lightly browned on top.  (Guard against over-browning on bottom).

Remove from cookie sheet and roll each baked cookie in powdered sugar to coat.
