Italian Fudge Roll Cookie Recipe

These are exactly what they sound like Italian Fudge Rolled into a delicious cookie crust!






Italian Fudge Roll Cookie Recipe
Dough:

2 1/2 cups flour
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
4 tablespoons shortening
1/2 cup whole milk
2 teaspoons baking powder





Real fudge filled cookies so decadent you will be over the moon if your a chocolate lover!





The filling is so delicious you really will not want to leave a drop left in the pan. It's a rich chocolate flavor that bursts with fudge flavor. This really is over the top for a filling. If you are allergic to nuts just omit them. The cookies is still fabulous with or without nuts. I have plenty of family and friends who prefer them without nuts. You can melt the chocolate and condensed milk together and separate it in two bowls. Add nuts to one and leave the other plain.
Make the filling:

 Melt 2 cups of chocolate chips (semi sweet) one can sweetened condensed milk and add 1  cup coarsely chopped walnuts. Set aside.


In a large bowl beat the sugar and the shortening together. Add the egg and milk, slowly pouring the flour and baking powder into to form a soft dough.
Cut the dough into 4 even rounds. 





Once you roll the dough out in an even shape it's easy to spread out the chocolate fudge using a spatula from edge to edge.


Tip: Make sure you use flour on the board or the dough will stick. Another trick is to roll on floured wax paper. Spread out the fudge and roll up. 





Just roll the dough up like a jelly roll using additional flour underneath and 

sealing the edges on each end.


Directions: Roll out (on a heavily floured board) each piece of dough into a rectangular shape (one at a time).
Pour a heaping scoops of filling in the center and spread it out with a spatula. (I use a large soup ladle one each for the 4 rolled dough's)

 Roll up like a jelly roll using floured hands. Place on parchment lined cookie sheets. Bake at 350 degrees preheated oven for 15 to 20 minutes.






Bake until golden brown. Keep a watch on them between 15 and 20 minutes.



 Cool completely then slice with a sharp knife. 

Dust with powdered sugar.
