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.
