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.
