Fig or Date Filled Cookies

1 cup shortening
2 cups brown sugar
3 eggs
4 cups flour

1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix above and chill.
Then cook until thick:

1/2 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup chopped nuts

After dough is chilled. Pinch off some and roll out. Spread some of the filling on dough, then roll up as a jelly roll and wrap in wax paper, being sure to close well, so it won't dry out. Repeat this process until all the dough and filling has been used. Makes 4-6 rolls. Place in refrigerator over night, next day slice off and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
