Christmas Rocks (Cookies)

I don't know how they got this name; these cookies are tender and delicious, not at all like rocks. My mother made them every Christmas, and they were a real favorite. For some reason, they taste very buttery, even though they have no butter in them.

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 1/3 cup shortening
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup cream
  • 1 cup chopped nuts
  • 2 cups chopped dates

Directions:

Mix the flour, baking powder, and salt. In a separate bowl, beat the sugar into the shortening thoroughly, until light and fluffy. Add the eggs 1 at a time, beating well after each. Mix the vanilla and the cream. Add the cream mixture and the flour mixture to the shortening alternately. When well mixed, add the dates and nuts, and mix in with a spoon.

Put on a greased baking sheet about 2 inches apart, they will spread, though not a lot. Bake at 350 degrees F for about 10 minutes.
