1/2 cup vegetable shortening
4 oz unsweetened baking chocolate
2 cups sugar
2 tsp vanilla
4 eggs
2 tsp baking powder
2 cups All-Purpose Flour
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup chopped nuts
confectioners sugar

In a microwave oven or in a saucepan set over low heat, melt together the shortening and chocolate. Transfer the melted chocolate to a large mixing bowl, and beat in the sugar and vanilla. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. In a separate bowl, sift together the baking powder, flour and salt. Add the nuts, then add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing well. Cover the bowl and refrigerate the dough for several hours. Remove the dough from the refrigerator, and shape it into walnut sized balls. Roll the balls well in confectioners sugar, and place them on a lightly greased cookie sheet, leaving about 1 1/2 inches between each cookie; they will spread.

Bake in preheated oven 350 degrees for 12 to 15 minutes.

yield; about 4 dozen 2 inch cookies
