Directions

  1. In a medium size bowl, combine the flour, walnuts, baking powder, and spices. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream the vegetable shortening with the sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the egg. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients. Cover and chill for 8 hours or overnight.
  3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (180 degrees C).
  4. On a floured surface, roll out the dough to a thickness of 1/4 inch. Cut into rounds using a 2-inch round cookie cutter and place 1-1/2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheet.
  5. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes, until golden. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
  6. Melt chocolate over low heat and drizzle over cooled cookies.

This recipe has too many dry ingredients. I tried it and it came out like powder. To try and save the recipe, I melted a 1 and 1/2 c. butter, but still it was too crumbly. I think Mikey forgot an ingredient or two.

Very dry and crumbly. Tastes like dried out, burnt pie crust. Very disappointed.
