    1      cup           shortening
      3/4  cup           sugar
    1                    egg
    1      teaspoon      vanilla extract
    2 1/2  cups          all-purpose flour
      1/2  teaspoon      baking powder
      1/8  teaspoon      salt
      3/4  cup           whole filberts or hazelnuts
                         GLAZE:
    2      cups          confectioner’s sugar
    3      Tablespoons   water
    2      teaspoons     vanilla extract
                         granulated sugar or about 60 crushed
                         sugar cubes
 
 In a mixing bowl, cream shortening and sugar. Add egg and vanilla; mix well.
Combine the dry ingredients and add to creamed mixture. Roll heaping teaspoonful
into balls; press a filbert into each and reshape so dough covers nut. Place on
ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 375 degrees for 12-15 minutes or until lightly
browned. Cool on wire racks. Combine first three glaze ingredients; dip entire
top of cookies. Roll in sugar. Yield: about 5 dozen.
