Raisin-Filled Cookies Recipe

Raisin-Filled Cookies Recipe

My Mother used to make Raisin-Filled Cookies all the time. They were a favorite of mine and I could eat a lot of them. I would put in a request for some and she would make them.
I don't remember but one other person in our family that would even eat one or two, but I loved them. Oh the smells of the kitchen. The  aromas coming from the oven. Here is a wonderful recipe for them. If you love raisins like I do, you're going to love them.

Raisin-Filled Cookies

1 cup packed brown sugar
1 cup sugar
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
3 eggs
2 tablespoons vanilla extract
5 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons buttermilk

1 tablespoon cornstarch
3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 cup packed brown sugar
2 cups boiling water
1 1/2 cups seedless raisins

In a mixing bowl, cream sugars and butter. Add eggs, beating well after each addition, add vanilla. 
Combine dry ingredients
add alternately with buttermilk to creamed mixture. Mix well. 

 For filling, combine cornstarch, flour and brown sugar in a saucepan. 
Add water, stirring constantly. 
Add raisins
stir and cook until mixture comes to a boil and is thickened, about 3 minutes. Cool.

On a floured surface, roll dough and cut into 3-in. circles. Spoon 2 teaspoons filling on a circle and top with another circle. Pinch edges together and cut slit in top.(some do this-my mother didn't)
 Repeat with remaining dough and filling.
 Place on ungreased baking sheets. Bake at 350 degrees F for 10-11 minutes or until lightly browned.
