        In a large mixing bowl, cut the butter into the flour until the pieces
   are the size of small peas.  Sprinkle 1 tablespoon of the water over part
   of the mixture; gently toss with a fork. Push to the side of the bowl.
   Repeat until all is moistened. Divide the dough in half. Form each into a
   ball; wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate, if necessary, for easier
   handling.
      Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  Pinch off about 1 tablespoon of the dough.
   On a lightly floured surface, rollthe dough into a rope about 1/4-inch
   thick and 6 to 8 inches long. Join the ends together and dip into the sugar
   to coat.  Twist the rope for form a figure-8 and place on an ungreased
   cookie sheet.  Repeat with the remaining dough. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes,
   or until firm and lightly browned on the bottoms. Transfer the cookies to
   wire racks to cool.
