Makes about 60

2 cups all-purpose flour
1-1/3 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 tea spoon salt
1/3 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 cup solid vegetable shortening
1 cup sugar
3 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1-1/2 cups finely chopped walnuts or pecans
1-1/2 cups powdered sugar

In a mixing bowl, stir together flour, baking powder, salt and cocoa powder. In a large mixing bowl, beat together shortening and sugar until creamy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir flour mixture into shortening mixture. Cover and chill dough 2 hours or until easy to handle.

Pre-heat oven to 375 and grease 2 baking sheets. Shape dough into 1" balls. Roll in nuts and then in powdered sugar. Place 2" apart on prepared baking sheets and bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are set and tops are cracked. Allow to cool 1 minute on baking sheets, then remove to wire racks to cool completely. Store in an airtight container at room temperature for about 2 weeks.

Would not make this again.
Super easy to make, but the taste isn't there. They are not sweet at all. It's like something is missing. 2 stars

Would make this again.
My family ate these almost as fast as I could bake them. My daughter has a birthday in a few days and wants these instead of a birthday cake!! :) 5 stars

Would make this again.
I make them without the nuts and they are just called chocolate crinkle cookies!!! I love them. They are very decorative too. 5 stars
