Date Pinwheels

3 3/4 cups pitted dates
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups water
1 1/2 cups chopped pecans

1 1/2 cups shortening
3 cups brown sugar
5 eggs, well beaten
6 cups sifted flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon soda

Cook dates, sugar, and water over low heat until thick (about 10
minutes). Add pecans and cool.

Cream shortening, add sugar gradually, add well beaten eggs, mix
well and add the rest of the ingredients. Chill thoroughly
(overnight, if possible).

Divide into two parts. Roll the dough on well floured waxed paper
until it is about 1/4 inch thick. Spread date mixture on dough
and handle carefully as you roll it like a jelly roll. It helps
to flour a flat knife and gradually work it under the dough as you
roll to keep it from tearing. Chill overnight.

Slice roll crosswise with a sharp knife and bake at 400 for 10 to
12 minutes. These burn easily, so watch carefully. Makes about
5 nice sized rolls.
