Cookie of the Week::Donut Cookies

My boy loves donuts.  All donuts, but most especially donut holes.  I can't really blame him (since I agree fully).  After I made these last week, I placed some in a bowl on the table, and after getting a good look at them, Noah's face lit up as he said, "Donuts!"

Well, no not really, but if you add a couple of extra tablespoons of butter to the mix, they do kind of have the same texture as donuts...

Sandies (Donut Cookies)

Cream 1 cup of butter (you can add a couple of extra tablespoons if you like) with 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar (or more);  add 2 tablespoons of water.  Mix.  Add two cups All-Purpose flour.  Mix well (until crumbly).  

Roll into one-inch balls and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.  You can place them very close together because they do not spread.  Bake at 300* for 20-25 minutes or until the bottoms are lightly browned.  Immediately roll in confectioners' sugar and place on a cooling rack.  These are best eaten in large quantities while hot before anyone else realizes you have made them.
