I talked about this recipe yesterday. I loved making them.
1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
1/2 cup sugar
2 teaspoon water (cold)
2 teaspoon vanilla or rum extract
2 cups sifted all purpose flour
1 cup chopped pecans (very fine)
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cream soft butter and sugar (about ten minutes).
Add water and extract. Mix well. Add flour until thoroughly mixed. Stir in pecans. Chill three or four hours in the refrigerator.
Shape into balls or fingers. Bake on un-greased cookie sheet in slow oven (325 degrees) for about 20 minutes.
Cool slightly, roll in confection sugar.
