Filling: Boil the dates, sugar and water for 10 minutes. Blend in black walnuts and cool completely.

Dough: Cream the shortening and sugar. Add the eggs and cream again. Sift together the flour salt and baking soda; then gradually mix into creamed mixture and mix well. Knead. Divide into 2 parts; wrap and refrigerate. (Overnight is good). Roll out both dough balls to 1/4" thickness. Spread each 1/4" thick with filling; then roll each ball jelly-roll style, giving you two rolls. Refrigerate overnight. Slice each roll into 1/4" slices. Place on cookie sheet and bake in a 375F oven for 10-12 minutes.
