Ingredients

  • 1 cup shortening

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 cup packed brown sugar

  • 3 eggs

  • 4 cups all-purpose flour

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda

  • 2 ½ cups dates, pitted and chopped

  • ½ cup white sugar

  • 1 cup water

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

Directions

  1. Blend together shortening, 1 cup white sugar, and brown sugar. Add eggs, vanilla, flour, salt, and soda. Mix well, and set dough aside.

  2. To Make Filling: In a saucepan, combine dates, sugar, water and nuts. Cook over medium heat until thick. Cool filling. If necessary, add water until mixture can be spread easily on the dough.

  3. Divide dough into 4 parts. Roll out each piece on a floured surface to 1/2 inch thick. Spread with cooled, not cold filling. Roll up jelly-roll style. Close ends and place rolls on cookie sheets. Refrigerate until cold.

  4. Slice chilled rolls, and bake at 400 degrees F (205 degrees C) for 10 minutes.
