Stella’s Date Pinwheel Cookies..Top Of The Line

Mother used to make these cookies and they are definitely my favorite cookie recipe. Takes a bit of time but they’re worth every moment you  spend. I call them “the Cadillac” of the cookies. Folks will love them!

FILLING

1 cup sugar

1 cup water

1 cup chopped nuts

MIX TOGETHER

1 cup shortening

2 cups brown sugar

3 eggs (beaten)

4 cups sifted flour
