Raisin-Filled Cookies Recipe

Our family has been making these flavorful cookies for years and years. We love the sweet raisin filling hidden in each cookie.

"My grandma's filled cookies were very much like these. They have been a family favorite for generations--especially with the men. In my dad's later years, I always baked/made his favorite cookies, muffins and candies (at gift holidays) for him. The first time, I got this HUGE smile and hug for my gift to him. My sis said she shopped for something for months and all I had to do was make him his favorite sweets. I reminded her that the way to a man's heart is through his stomach!!"

"This was my favorite cookie growing up. My Mom passed away in 2004. She had given me her receipe box which disapeared. We didn't use nutmeg or buttermilk, this receipe was very good with a new twist."

"This may be the 'Raisin Filling' referred to on the 'Basic cookie Dough' recipe. In addition this is from the Raisin-Filled Cookies recipe!"

"An old favourite. They're delicious, and best of all they bring back happy memories of childhood. I first made these with my sister when I was 13; I think we ate the whole batch within two or three days."
