Ingredients
  Pitted dates 2 1⁄4 Cup (36 tbs), cut up
  Granulated sugar 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Water 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Chopped nuts 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Shortening 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Firmly packed brown sugar 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Eggs 3 , well-beaten
  Sifted all purpose flour 4 Cup (64 tbs)
  Salt 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Baking soda 1⁄2 Teaspoon
Directions

Combine the dates, granulated sugar, and water in a saucepan and cook over low heat until thick-about 10 min.
Add the nuts and cool.
Meanwhile, work the shortening with a spoon until fluffy and creamy; add the brown sugar gradually while continuing to work with a spoon until light.
Add the well-beaten eggs and mix well.
Add the remaining ingredients sifted together and mix well.
Cover and chill thoroughly.
Divide the mixture into two parts and roll each out separately into a rectangle a little less than 1/4" thick.
Spread each with some of the date filling and roll up as for a jelly roll into two-long rolls.
Wrap in waxed paper and chill thoroughly—overnight if you can, in refrigerator; then cut with a sharp knife into slices about 1/2" thick.
Arrange on greased or oiled cookie sheets.
Bake in a moderately hot oven of 400°F for 10-12 min.
