1/2 cup vegetable shortening
2 cups white sugar
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

1/2 cup chopped walnuts
3/4 cup confectioners' sugar


Melt the chocolate and shortening in a saucepan over low heat.

Remove from heat and mix in sugar and vanilla. Beat in eggs 1 at a time.

In a bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt.

Stir in the chocolate mixture and nuts.

Chill dough in the refrigerator 3 hours or overnight.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets.

Roll dough into 1 inch balls.

Roll dough balls in confectioners' sugar to coat. Arrange 3 inches apart on the prepared cookie sheets.
