(from the early 1950's)
Cream 1 cup butter and 1/4 cup powdered sugar. Add 2 teaspoons vanilla, 2 cups flour, 1 Tablespoon water. Mix well.
Add 1 cup chopped nuts. Optional add 1 teaspoon cinnamon, allspice or cloves etc.
Form into small balls, flatten slightly. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet. 300 degrees F for 20 minutes or until delicately browned. While hot, roll in powdered sugar. I let them cool and roll again in the powdered sugar.
(Instead of rolling, I use a paper bag and shake them gently to coat them.)
