1 1/4 c. unsifted flour
1/4 c. sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1/2 c. (1 stick) butter
2 tbsp. whiskey, gin or vodka
3/4 c. ground pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine sugar, flour and salt in a bowl. Cut butter into flour mixture with a pastry blender. Add liquor and nuts; mix thoroughly. Shape into balls about 1 inch in diameter and place on ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. Makes about 2 dozen.

Note: If pecans are dry and mixture is too dry to form into balls. Add a drop or two
more of liquor.
