  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  2. In a medium bowl, cream the butter, margarine and confectioners' sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the vanilla. Add the flour and mix until just blended. Do not overmix.
  3. Roll dough into 1 inch balls. Place cookies 2 inches apart into prepared cookie sheets. Make a slight indentation in the center. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes in the preheated oven. Cookies should be lightly browned. Cool slightly and frost the center of each cookie.
  4. To make the icing, combine the confectioners' sugar, cocoa and vanilla in a small bowl. Stir in the hot water 1 tablespoon at a time until desired consistency is reached. Drizzle the icing from the tip of a knife or spoon onto the center of each cookie. Allow the cookies time to set up before serving.

The recipe doesn't say to add the nuts, salt, and baking powder in at any time so I added it when I added the flour. They ended up quite good and very addicting, as my mother found out!


This was a faceless recipe which I had never tried. After reading the reviews, I decided to add an egg and to finely chop the pecans in the food processor. The cookies have a nice nutty and buttery taste resembling a Pecan Sandie. I placed cookie dough in a cookie press and the dough worked fine. The instructions aren't as precise as they need to be on this recipe. I only baked for 9 minutes. Everyone enjoyed!


These were good cookies, but needed to be pulled out of the oven sooner than the time stated in the recipe. Also, I am subtracting one star because the directions are insufficient and do not tell you when to add all the ingredients listed. I omitted the pecans, because my kids don't like them in cookies, otherwise followed the recipe pretty closely.
