Ingredients

½ cup vegetable shortening
or butter
*
1 cup brown sugar
dark, firmly packed
*
1 large eggs
2 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
ground
Filling
8 ounces dates
chopped, whole, pitted
½ cup sugar
¼ cup water
1 cup pecans
finely chopped

Directions

Cream shortening; gradually add sugar, beating well at medium speed of an electric mixer. Add egg, and beat well.

Combine flour, soda, salt, and cinnamon; gradually add to creamed mixture, mixing well. Shape dough into a ball. (Dough will be stiff)

Place dough on a lightly floured surface; roll into a 16- x 8-inch rectangle. Spread filling over dough, leaving a ½-inch margin on all sides. Starting at long side, carefully roll dough, jellyroll fashion; pinch seam and ends of roll to seal.

Wrap dough in wax paper, and chill at least 1 hour. Unwrap roll, and cut into ¼ inch slices. Place 1 inch apart on greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350℉ (180℃) for 12 to 15 minutes. Makes about 3 dozen.

FILLING:

Combine dates, sugar, and water in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat 3 to 5 minutes or until thickened, stirring constantly. Remove filling from heat, and stir in pecans until well mixed.
