1. In medium-sized bowl, combine first 4 ingredients and 3 tablespoons light-brown sugar.
2. Into large bowl, measure flour, shortening, egg, and 1 cup packed light-brown sugar. Knead ingredients until dough holds together.
3. On sheet of waxed paper, roll out half of dough into a 14" by 6" rectangle; spread with half of nut mixture. Starting with a 6-inch side, roll up dough. Repeat with remaining dough and nut mixture. Wrap and refrigerate rolls 2 hours or until firm enough to slice. (Dough can be refrigerated up to 1 week before baking.)
