Instructions

For the raisin filling:

  • Cover the ingredients with water and bring to a boil in a medium sauce pan. Then add 1/2 c. melted butter and 5 Tbsp. of flour to thicken. Once thick, remove mixture from heat and set aside to cool.

For the cookie dough:

  • Cream together the sugar, shortening, and eggs. Then mix in all the other ingredients.
  • Roll out into Tbsp sized balls and flatten into rounds. Put down one round, add filling in the center, then top with another round and seal around the edges with finger tips. Bake at 400 degrees for about 8 minutes, or until light brown in color. Cool completely. (optional: sprinkle with a little cinnamon and sugar)
