  1. In a medium bowl, cream together the sugar and shortening. Stir in the egg and vanilla, beat until light and fluffy. Combine the cake flour, baking soda and salt, stir into the creamed mixture. Dough will be stiff, you may need to use your hands to mix. Roll dough into a log about 15 inches long, and roll in the ground nuts. Wrap and chill dough for at least an hour or until firm.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.
  3. Unwrap dough and cut into 1/2 inch slices. Place cookies 1 1/2 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets.
  4. Bake for 10 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool for a few minutes on the baking sheets before removing to cool completely on wire racks. When cool, place a dollop of fudge icing onto the center of each cookie.

These got rave reviews at work. I had to add water to make the dough manageable. Otherwise it was crumbs.

Wow! These are amazing! I was pretty worried because they were awfully crumbly when I was try to roll into a log, but after sitting in the fridge it made them stick a bit more and they are jus...

I made these exactly as the recipe stated. They are identical tasting to the ones I buy at our local grocery store. They are great. The only slight problem for me was the dough was dry and cr...

Very good! Yes, they are just like the ones my mom used to buy from the grocery store, and I haven't been able to find. I used DH Creamy Homestyle frosting in Dark Chocolate Fudge. Also brush...
