Raisen filled Cookies

I remember watching my father make these growing up. My brothers and I would wait till my dad would hand out the raw cookie dough that was leftover which was a huge treat for us. Everytime I make these cookies it brings me back to my childhood kitchen.

Ingredients

RAISEN FILLING

2 c
raisens (dark) covered with water
1 c
sugar
2 Tbsp
cornstarch

COOKIE BATTER

1 c
sugar
1/2 c
shortening
1
egg
1/2 c
milk
3 1/2 c
flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1 tsp
cream of tartar
1 tsp

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Raisen Filling: Cook raisens covered with the water and the sugar till the raisens are tender. Add the cornstarch till the raisens are thick and let cook.
2
Cookie Batter: Cream sugar and shortening together. Add egg, vanilla and the milk till combined. Add flour, baking soda, and cream of tartar. On a floured surface roll out the dough and cut into disks. (my dad always use a water glass to cut out the cookies). Fill the center of the disks with a teaspoon of raisen mixture then place another disk of dough on top to cover then crimp the sides of the cookie to prevent leaking. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden brown. These cookies freeze exceptionally well.
