These cookies are OLD. My Mom got them from her Mom and her Mom lived to be a 101.

Make the Raisin Filling:
3/4 of a package of raisins
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 or 1 1/2 cups water – it will thicken like picture below. Add more water if it’s too thick. It should be like a thick gravy.

Add a good sized tablespoon in the middle of each round cookie. More is preferable to less because this provides the moisture that makes this cookie so special and succulent. :)

Now add another cookie on top.

And crimp it together at the edges.

Bake at 375 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. Don’t overcook.

Don’t cook them too much, just slightly golden around the edges.
