Raisin Filled Cookies (fake Newtons)
Prepare raisins (see below) so they can cool while you are mixing the
Cream shortening and sugar. Add eggs and vanilla, then milk. Sift
dry ingredients. Add to other mixture. Roll dough on floured board
and cut round cookie.
Grind raisins add sugar, flour and water. Cook over low heat until
thick. Stir constantly. Allow mixture to cool partially before
adding to the cookies.
Place one teaspoon of filling on each cookie and fold over to cover.
Bake at 350 (no time given)
Have to experiment with time (probably seal edges of dough of the
cookie before baking)
