 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1 1/2  cups          vegetable shortening
      3/4  cup           granulated sugar
    1 1/2  teaspoons     salt
    2                    eggs
    4      cups          all-purpose flour
      1/4  teaspoon      baking soda
    2      tablespoons   water
    1      cup           pecans -- shelled
 
 1.  Preheat the oven to 325F degrees. 2.  In a large bowl, cream together
 the shortening, sugar, and salt with  an electric mixer on medium speed. 3.
  Add the eggs and beat well. 4.  While mixing, slowly add the flour, baking
 soda, and water. 5.  Chop the pecans into very small bits using a food
 processor or blender  on low speed.  Be careful not to over chop;  you
 don't want to make pecan  dust.  The pieces should be about the size of
 rice grains. 6.  Add the pecans to the dough and knead with your hands
 until the pecans  are well blended into the mixture. 7.  Roll the dough
 into 1-inch balls and press flat with your hands onto  greased baking
 sheets.  The cookies should be about 2 inches in diameter  and 1/2-inch
 thick. 8.  Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until the edges of the cookies are
 golden  brown.
