Mom's Christmas Butter Balls

Whisky Butter Ball recipe - from my Mom's recipes. You can use any whisky you like however a sweeter whisky would work best. Smoke and peat wouldn't go well for these little cookies. Use a sweet Speyside or Highland. Ingredients: 1 ½ cubes butter or margarine
1 ½ cups powdered sugar
¾ cups water
2 ½ cups flour
1 cup chopped nuts (preferable almonds or walnuts)
3 tsp. of either Scotch whisky, brandy or rum Cream butter, add sugar and water and cream thoroughly. Add remaining ingredients. Shape into balls and bake in a pre-heated 350 degree oven until lightly browned on bottoms. Turn and brown other side. If the mixture falls apart when you are making the balls, add more water. When baked, roll hot butter balls into sifted powdered sugar until the flour sticks to the balls. Refrigerate after cooled. We had these every Christmas day. They are divine.
