Okay, I'm delurking for this to share a filled cookie recipe from a cookbook that my Mom gave to each of her children last Christmas. She and Dad were married in 1949 and have six children. She's a wonderful cook, and the book is priceless, as it is filled with recipes from friends and family members who are no longer with us, and contains her personal notes. She made it by entering some of her recipes on computer and then putting the printed recipes into a three-ring binder with category dividers. It's one of those projects that she started and almost didn't give because she doesn't view it as "finished" since, of course, it doesn't contain all of her favortie recipes. She finally realized that she could give out what she had completed, and it would be a wonderful gift that could be supplemented over the years. For all of you Moms and/or long-time good cooks, I can testify that such a personal cookbook is a wonderful and much appreciated gift. Here's a cookie recipe in the spirit of Mary's challenge (the notes are my Mom's). Thanks to all of you who make this list such a treat.
Mix sugar and flour, pour hot water over this -- add raisins and nuts and cool til thick. Chill this then use any sugar cookie recipe for cookies.
Cut out cookie -- spoon a spoon of raisin mix in middle of cookie and top with another cookie. Crimp edges together -- place on cookie sheet, prick top in one place to let out steam and bake -- maybe 375 degrees til browned.
(My Mom's notes -- This is an old recipe from my Aunt Lorene (my Dad's sister). She used to make this at Christmas and keep in the rose cookie jar that I now have, and send some to me.) Posted to TNT - Prodigy's Recipe Exchange Newsletter by g.barham@...
