Grandma's Raisin Filled Cookies

In honor of my Dad's birthday today, I wanted to post this very special cookie recipe. I remember my wonderful grandma making a large container of these for my dad every year for his special day.

My sisters and I were usually allowed to eat ONE...the rest were dad's!

I'm afraid I don't have a picture for you, but they look just like a fat sugar cookie...and taste delicious!


1 cup sugar
1/2 cup shortening
1 egg, slightly beaten
1 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 1/2 cups flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla

Cream together sugar and shortening. Add egg and milk. Stir in dry ingredients and vanilla until dough forms.

Roll thin and cut out with round cutter.

Raisin Filling:
In a large saucepan, combine 3/4 cup sugar and 1 tablespoon flour. Add 1 cup of boiling water and 1 cup chopped raisins. Cook until thickened, then add 1 teaspoon vanilla.

Place small amount of filling on one cookie, cover with another cookie. Pinch edges together to seal.

Bake at 350 degrees for 15 minutes.

Recommend: YES

I remember a recipe like this from my childhood. My grandparents owned a bakery, and I think the cookies came from there. Now I'll have to make them at home!
