Chocolate Nut-Filled Cookies

Ingredients:

  • 2/3 cup shortening
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt Chocolate-Nut Filling:
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 cup chocolate syrup
  • 1/4 cup pecans; chopped

Description:

1. Make the Chocolate-Nut Filling first so it has time to cool. (For Chocolate-Nut Filling: Combine the sugar, cornstarch, chocolate syrup, and pecans and cook over low heat until thick and smooth. Cool thoroughly.) Now make the cookie dough. Cream shortening and sugar together until the mixture is light and fluffy. Add the egg and beat well.

2. Add flour, baking powder, and salt and mix well. Chill dough 3 to 4 hours.

3. Roll out dough to 1/8″ thickness on a lightly floured board. Cut half of the dough into 36 circles with a 2″ cookie cutter. Using a 2″ doughnut cutter, cut remaining dough into 36 circles. Place solid circles on lightly greased cookie sheets. In center of each circle, place a teaspoon of Chocolate-Nut Filling; spread almost to the edges. Top with a circle cut with doughnut cutter; seal edges with fork tines. Bake in a 350 degrees oven for 10 to 12 minutes.
