3. Now add the flour, vanilla, water, and nuts.  Continue to mix…I use a spoon at first then my hands for this part because I think it works better than the mixer.

4. Once it is all mixed up start rolling the mixture into about tsp size balls…

5. Place balls on a cookie sheet.  No need to space, they don’t rise.  Cook for 30-40 minutes.

6. Get your powdered sugar ready for rolling!  The second you take the cookies out of the oven, roll them into the sugar…
