Chocolate Walnut Dollars

Great gramma’s recipe


1/2 C shortening or softened butter

1 C sugar

add 1 egg, blend

2 Tablespoons milk

2 ounces unsweetened chocolate, melted


1 tsp baking powder

1 t cinnamon

1 t vanilla


2 1/4 C flour

blend well

add 1/2 C chopped walnuts or pecans

Blend well.

Form into two balls then into rolls about 12 inches long.

Place in wax paper and chill for at least two hours.

When firm, cut into 1/4 inch discs and bake at 350 for 12 minutes.

I melted the chocolate in my mixing bowl first, then added the butter and sugar.





The dough is very dry. I used my hands to mix the last bit of flour and walnuts. It will try to crumble when you make the rolls. Patience.
