These Old Fashioned Raisin Stuffed Shortbread Cookies have quickly become a favorite of my Dad’s. My mom was making them again the other day and I stole a plate full and the recipe so that I could share them with all of you. Luckily I still ended up with a few to take a picture because I couldn’t stop eating them on the way home. These cookies are soft and chewy with a yummy and sweet raisin filling that kind of reminds me of eating fig newtons (minus the figs of course).
My mom got this recipe from a good friend of hers while serving a mission at a camp. Her friend was famous around the camp for these yummy treats, all the other missionaries loved when she would whip up a batch. Apparently this recipe has been in their family for generations and is truly an old fashioned cookie recipe.
