DIRECTIONS

  • CRUST: Mix flour, salt, powdered sugar, and butter for pie dough; then add beaten egg and water to mixture.
  • Roll on a floured surface and spread 1 cup shortening on top of dough, fold up and place in fridge for 30 minutes.
  • Roll out dough again on floured surface and spread remaining cup of shortening on top, fold and place in fridge for 2 hours.
  • Roll out small batch of dough on floured surface (I divide dough into fourths).
  • Cut into 6 x 1/2-inch strips and spiral wrap around clothes pins (overlap the dough, don't leave spaces).
  • Bake on ungreased cookie sheets for 12-15 minutes at 370°F.
  • Remove from clothes pin while still warm (about 5 minutes after taking from the oven) to prevent breakage.
  • FILLING: Place all ingredients in bowl, mix well.
  • Use a piping bag or cookie press to fill each cooled cookie.
  • Dust with powdered sugar.
