Mix together first 3 ingredients. Combine dates sugar and water in a saucepan; cook over low heat until thick (about 10 min). Add nuts; cool. Meanwhile, work shortening with spoon until fluffy and creamy; add brown sugar slowly, while continuing to work until light, add eggs, mix well. Add flour mixture, mix well. Cover, chill thoroughly. Divide mixture in half; roll each half separately into rectangle a little less than 1/4" thick. Spread each with 1/2 date fillling; roll up as for jelly roll into 2 rolls. Wrap in waxed paper; chill well -- overnight if you can -- then cut with sharp thin knife, using gentle sawing motion, into slices about 1/4" thick. Arrange 2" apart, on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 for 10-12 min or until done.
