These easy to make and delicious cookies are a Christmas favorite each year. The dough will be really thick…just roll them in balls, cover with powdered sugar and bake.
1 (18 ounce) package devils food cake mix
2 eggs, stiffly beaten (5 minutes)
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 tablespoon water
1/2 cup solid shortening
2 cups chopped pecans
Combine cake mix, eggs, vanilla and water. Stir. Stir in pecans. Shape dough into 1″ balls and roll in powdered sugar. Place dough balls 1 1/2 ” apart on a greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12 minutes. Cookies will be soft when removed from the oven. Let cookies set on cookie sheet for a few minutes and then transfer to a cooling rack.
