This recipe is way different than chocolate chip or design cookies. But well worth trying.
Sift the flour and 1/2 teaspoon salt into a bowl. Cut in the shortening with a pastry blender or 2 knives. Beat the egg yolk and water and add, tossing lightly until a ball of dough is formed. Chill 1 hour.
Chop together until very fine the meat, mushrooms, crab meat, vermicelli, egg, remaining salt, and pepper. Roll out the dough 1/4-inch thick and cut into 6-inch circles. Place some of the filling on one end, turn ends in and roll up like a jelly roll. Moisten edges with egg white or water to seal. Heat the fat to 365 degrees and fry 2 or 3 rolls at a time for 10 minutes, or until browned. Drain and keep warm while preparing the balance.
