Original recipe yields 2 dozen cookies

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Whisk 3 1/2 cups flour, 1 cup sugar, cream of tartar, and baking soda together in a bowl. Mix vegetable shortening, milk, egg, and vanilla extract into dry ingredients to make a dough. Roll the dough out 1/4-inch thick on a floured work surface. Cut dough into 2 1/2-inch rounds using a biscuit cutter or glass.
  3. Combine raisins, 1/2 cup sugar, and 1 tablespoon flour in a bowl; stir to coat raisins. Spoon 1 rounded teaspoon of raisin mixture into center of a cookie round and top with another round. Use a fork to crimp the edges together to make little pies. Place cookies onto a baking sheet.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until cookies are lightly golden brown, about 11 minutes. Watch carefully to prevent burning.
  5. Gather cut scraps of dough, gently form into a ball, and roll out again. Repeat steps as before until all dough and filling are used up.

Have not tried this recipe, but, very similar to my grandmothers. Correct in saying (don't work the do too much. Best cookie in the known universe. My wife bakes a double batch every year for Christmas.

Have just saved this **wonderfully** sounding recipe. All recipes passed down from generation to generation must truly be special. Am planning to make these soon. Thank You for sharing.
