Serves 30 servings | Prep Time 25 minutes + chilling | Cook Time 10 minutes/batch

Ingredients

1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1 egg yolk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

FILLING:
1 cup (6 ounces) semisweet chocolate chips
1 tablespoon shortening
1 cup finely chopped walnuts
1/3 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract


In a large bowl, cream butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in egg yolk and vanilla. Combine the flour, salt and baking powder; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well.



Roll out dough into a 12-in. x 10-in. rectangle between two sheets of waxed paper; transfer to a baking sheet. Refrigerate for 30 minutes.



In a small microwave-safe bowl, melt chocolate chips and shortening. Stir in the walnuts, milk and vanilla. Remove waxed paper from dough; spread with filling. Tightly roll up jelly-roll style, starting with a long side. Wrap in plastic wrap; refrigerate for 2 hours or until firm.



Unwrap and cut into 1/4-in. slices. Place 2 in. apart on lightly greased baking sheets. Bake at 375° for 8-10 minutes or until set. Remove to wire racks. Store in an airtight container.
