Step-By-Step

1350 degrees
2NUT FILLING.........
Boil water and sugar, till ball forms in water or 225 degrees. Add Karo and nuts. Cook about 5 minutes. Sit aside to cool.
3Cookie dough....
Mix together till crumbly, flour and butter, use your hands.
4Add whipping cream, eggs, baking powder, sugar, vanilla and salt. Mix till it picks up itself. (smooth as a baby's bottom).
5Roll out thin and cut into 3 inch squares. Put nut filling on the dough, not to much or it will make its way out of the cookie. Now roll the dough like a crescent roll. Then take the cookie and fold the ends in toward each other, it'll look like a shrimp.
6Place on parchment paper on a cookie sheet. about an inch apart.(this will save you time if the filling comes out and bakes on sheet)
Brush with egg white before putting in oven.
7Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.
8Remove from oven and roll in powder sugar. Store in plastic bag sealed.
