My goal with this recipe was to get as close to the "not to be named" danish wedding cookie as I could.You know those kind in a pink box?

Preheat oven to 375
In a food processor chop the cacao nibs really fine. Then add the pecans and chop them coarsely. Add this and shortening, butter and sugar to a mixing bowl and stir together with a spoon. Then add flour, vanilla, coconut flavoring, cinnamon, cardamon, cocoa powder and stir that together.
Roll the dough into 1 inch balls and place onto a cookie sheet sprayed with non-stick spray. Place in oven and cook for about 12 minutes. Let them cool 3 minutes and while still warm shake them around in a large freezer bag with the confectioner's sugar.
