Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.


Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla. Stir in half of the flour, then add the water or brandy. Stir in the rest of the flour and the chopped pecans until blended. Roll the dough into 3/4-inch balls and place them 1 inch apart on a greased baking sheet.


Bake on the middle rack of the oven until lightly browned, 10 to 12 minutes. Cool slightly and toss in powdered sugar.
