“These were a favorite cookie in my family when I was growing up, and we loved to help Mom make the "thumbprints" in each cookie, where the sweet raisin filling was placed before baking.”

Original recipe yields 3 dozen

Directions

  1. For cookies, cream margarine with peanut butter. Mix in sugar, then beat in eggs and milk. Stir in baking soda, oats, and flour.
  2. To Make Filling: Combine raisins, water, and lemon juice. Heat until nearly boiling. Mix sugar with cornstarch; add enough (cold) water to make a paste. Stir into raisin mixture and heat until clear.
  3. Shape dough into walnut-sized balls. Place on a greased cookie sheet. Using your thumb, indent the center of each ball, making a fairly good-sized hollow spot. Fill with about a teaspoon of filling. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for about 10-12 minutes.

Good cookie for tea, base itself wasn't sweet enough for my liking. I needed to ad 1/4 milk to the mixture for easier handling.
