Pecan Sandies

1 1/2 c Vegetable shortening
3/4 c Granulated sugar
1 1/2 ts Salt
2 Eggs
4 c All purpose flour
1/4 ts Baking soda
2 tb Water
1 c Shelled pecans
| 1 Preheat the oven to 325~F
2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening, sugar, and salt
with an electric mixer on medium speed.
3. Add the eggs and beat well.
4. While mixing, slowly add the flour, baking soda, and water.
5. Chop the pecans into very small bits using a food processor or
blender on low speed. Be careful not to overchop; you don’t want
to make pecan dust. The pieces should be about the size of rice grains.
6. Add the pecans to the dough and knead with your hands until the pecans
are well blended into the mixture.
7. Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and press flat with your hands
onto ungreased baking sheets. The cookies should be about 2 inches
in diameter and 1/2 inch thick.
8. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are
golden brown.
