Pecan Dreams

Pecan Dreams are my family's favorite Christmas cookie.  I have made these every year since the 1950's. 

1 cup butter
1/4 cup powdered sugar
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
1 TBS water
2 cups flour
2 cups pecans, finely chopped
Powdered sugar

Cream butter; blend in sugar, salt, vanilla, and water.  Add flour and pecans; mix well.  Chill if dough is soft.  Shape dough into small finger-like ovals.  Bake on ungreased cookie sheet and bake at 350 about 15 minutes.  Roll in powdered sugar while warm.  When cool, roll in powdered sugar again.

10 dozen
